Bluefish... It's A Keeper

Filed under
Software
Reviews

Bluefish is a handy, text-based HTML editor for anybody that needs to crank out a lot of Web content, without a lot of fluff. Don't be fooled by the low release number. Bluefish is a mature application that does its job quickly and efficiently.

Naturally, you'll need to use a browser to view HTML produced in Bluefish. It's a small price to pay and is actually beneficial, because I'm assured of how the page will look to a reader.

In this article we'll look at why you might choose Bluefish over a more GUI oriented editor, like Quanta. Quanta is a great full featured development environment. It's a little overkill for my needs right now. For the Windows converts that might be familiar creating pages with Frontpage, Word or OpenOffice.org (on Windows), Bluefish gives you the power to produce precise, clean code that is actually easy to read.

Version 1.0 has quite a few features that can make producing that next Web article, an enjoyable experience. Let's take a look.

Full Review.

Head 2 Head: Android OS vs. Chrome OS

A large part of Google’s OS success hasn’t been because of its awesomeness. No. Frankly, we think nothing speaks louder than the almighty dollar in this world. But both are “free,” right? So this is tie? Not really. Although Android is technically free since Google doesn’t charge device makers for it, there are costs associated with getting devices “certified.” Oh, yeah, and then there’s Apple and Microsoft, both of which get healthy payouts from device makers through patent lawsuits. Microsoft reportedly makes far more from Android sales than Windows Phone sales. You just generally don’t see the price because it’s abstracted by carriers. Chrome OS, on the other hand, actually is pretty much free. A top-ofthe-line Chromebook is $280, while a top-of-the-line Android phone full retail is usually $600. We’re giving this one to Chrome OS because if it’s generally cheaper for the builder, it’s cheaper for you. Read more
