It has to be said, I’m an awful beta-tester. I get asked on a few of these things, only to rarely have to time to offer feedback or bug reports. Its not just lack of time though, I often find I’m not enthused enough about the product in question to be motivated.

Until last November, when the first alpha release of Coda came along. I then played with the Mac OS X app that I have been the most excited about in years. ‘Enthused’ didn’t really cover it, I was truly smitten.

Coda is a single application for editing, previewing and FTP, not to mention Terminal access and book reference. With Coda, I can have a single window, with tabs and split views to manage each site. Not just local HTML and CSS files, but I could have tabs with web-based admin panels and remote site. I click my thumbnail for The Forgiveness Project and immediately have everything I need to work on it – the local CSS, the remote Texpattern admin interface and the site itself.

There’s so much to write about, and too little time, but I wanted to say that Coda has won me over like no other Mac App has done before.

    You paint a great mural, and some idiot adds their ugly tag to the little of space you left to balance the composition.
