Sorry for the bump but I thought this would be a better place to ask vs. starting a new thread and separating possibly valuable info from this plethora of info.

Anyway...

1) I need a good program for coding HTML and such, I have dreamweaver MX but my teacher wont let anyone use anything but a "text edit" program for hand written code. I have found Tag ($13) and BBEdit ($49 after student discount) and would like to know if anyone has first hand experience with them to say definitely one over the other.

2) I have heard a lot about ****tail and after reading this thread found TinkerTool. I installed ****tail just before reading this thread and didn't see a lot of useful things that I couldn't do without it via "Disk Utility" or "Terminal" (other than cleaning the system cache, that I don't know how to do). So my question is... is ****tail really all its hyped up to be?

Some things I didn't see listed ShapShooter and SideNote ;)

I suggest getting subthaEdit instead of either tag or bbedit, its cheaper, and handles things much nicer

as for tinkertool, yeah just create some apple scripts that tell terminal to run certain commands, plus its better to learn terminal commands ;D

BBEdit has given me good experiences so far! Granted, I actually need to purchase it sometime. Maybe in college.

SafariStand has some promise. I like the ability to save all my open tabs. I've wanted this for ages!

And the icons of the tabs open is awesome too.

SafariStand crashes Safari a lot.

The "stand" menubar add on is ugly.

I haven't had it crash once yet.

And I don't use the menubar add-on.

It's still features I've wanted in Safari forever anyway.

Dictinoary.app, where would I be without you?

The mi text editor is completely free,very useful for coding, and makes me feel retro (I love the look of a Carbon interface).

I've been a windows user forever and I've gotten so used to winamp. I've never liked anything about iTunes, especially when winamp did it so much better and less resource-intensive.

if you believe winamp is bloated, I sincerely hope you think iTunes is too..
