Does its job well!

I use text wrangle to quickly edit plist and html files. Does the job wonderfully!


This has been an ever present since I got into Mac back in 2007,,,, Best free text editor out there!

Keeps crashing!

I would have given this app a 4 stars, but It keeps frozen on me and gives me the infinite spinning beach ball every few minutes. I am a web developer therefore I often need to open very large file in different programming languages. Apparently TextWrangler can’t deal with it. As I understand, the maker of this app is retiring TextWrangler in favor of BBEdit, the same maker. I tried BBEdit, it is just the same issues under a different name.Comon Bare Bones, you can do better than that>
