I’ve given up having to remember a bunch of passwords long ago. I literally have hundreds of accounts scattered across the Internet, and it was impossible for me to remember all of the passwords, so I’d end up only having two or three variations of the same password — which is very insecure, and frustrating because you still have to remember the variation. With Dashlane, I only have to remember a single secure master password in order to log in to any of my accounts. I use this tool everyday, and I suggest you consider adding it to your tool belt. Dashlane is available for all your devices, for both Mac & Windows. Check out Dashlane here.
I strongly recommend Coda 2 for Mac. A beautiful User Interface with tabbed navigation, a super sidebar, and a simple layout. The features are outrageous and extensive, with code folding, smart complete, auto indentation, GIT integration, a built-in terminal, iCloud support — to name a few.
A full fledged code editor that features side-by-side mode for comparing documents, full screen mode, and a whole bunch of other great features. One of the best editors out there.
TextWranger is a very simple yet capable text editor. It’s a very good option for those who are just starting to code as you have no choice but to hand-code everything — since there are no extra features.
