After a slow, painful decline in its later years, Adobe has finally put HomeSite out of its misery.
In the mid-’90s, new HTML editors were constantly hitting the shareware market, all with slightly different features and interfaces. Like many others, I settled into using HomeSite and stuck with it for years until TopStyle Pro (from the same author) offered a compelling upgrade.
Nowadays I’m on a Mac (using Textmate; toying with switching to Coda), but for around a decade (wow, that’s a little scary) most of my work was created using Nick Bradbury’s products, so it’s sad to see one of them go to that big source code repository in the sky.
