CSSEdit -- A feature-laden CSS editor
Authored by: chaoswerks on Sep 30, '04 02:03:22AM
Style Master is a far more feature laden app than CSSEdit. Style Master makes it easier to access CSS features. It's as easy as CSSEdit, nay, easier since it Style Master helps you easily use the cascade features of Cascading Style Sheets.

CSSEdit -- A feature-laden CSS editor

Style Master also costs $35 more than CSSEdit, which is far too much to justify getting it over MacRabbit's app.

Stylemaster is also worth far more than the $60 you pay for it. If you are serious about CSS then go for Stylemaster. If you are just tinkering then go with the cheaper options.

CSSEdit -- A feature-laden CSS editor
Authored by: robg on Sep 30, '04 08:23:53AM

I hadn't found StyleMaster in my search for a CSS editor. However, I just downloaded it and spent a few minutes with it. It's clearly well done, but I have a couple issues with it that still leave me preferring CSSEdit.

First, and biggest, is the fact that you can only display one "editor" box at a time. So if you're laying out a top-level style with font, border, position, background, etc., you'll be switching between the various editors quite a bit -- unless, and this is clearly the leaning of the program -- you prefer to work in text mode, where you just type your style info directly. CSSEdit manages to cleanly make all of the editors available with a mouse click; granted, you can change the editor in StyleMaster with a button click, but it's visually slower and more distracting with the drawer.

Second, as noted above, it's over 2x more costly than CSSEdit.

I also checked out the freebie Firefox extensions (since I use Firefox all the time), and they are useful ... but they won't replace CSSEdit for me, since they are *not* intuitive and don't make it easy to understand the CSS syntax. But they are great for looking at a site's CSS, and I love the other features in the Web Developer extension.
