I do rate Bluefish but...

Posted by: Anonymous [ip: 83.244.129.66] on April 23, 2008 01:05 PM
I happily use Bluefish almost exclusively for PHP/HTML/Javascript and CSS. A few things need addressing before it's perfect though:

- Syntax highlighting is sometimes problematic, particularly auto-updating. Hitting the F5 key sometimes to keep the display up to date is annoying
- Javascript syntax highlighting should be applied when it is included within an HTML page using <script> tags
- The tabs showing the open documents at the bottom of the page are inelegant. Scrolling left and right to find a document is time consuming - there must be a better solution.

Other than that, I'm very happy with it.
