More on the Mac

Ok, so I’ve finally convinced myself to use Safari. Now that I’ve gotten used to it, with the native UI widgets and overall good performance I wonder what was holding me back in the beginning – I’m still not sure.

For programming, I’ve been giving TextMate a try, but with the 30 day trial eventually ending (funny how that happens), I’ve decided to give something else a spin before purchasing it, so I’ve been using JEdit, and I must say that it is solid. It was key to turn on font smoothing (TextMate spoils you in that department), and install some plugins before really being able to use it.
