Espresso 49.95€ ≈ $68.06 USD with the CSSEdit 2 discount
I love CSSEdit 2 and I’ve been using the Espresso betas since they went public, and while I enjoy it as a source code editor I’m very skeptical of the app being worth the steep price. Espresso isn’t even a replacement for CSSEdit, Espresso has very basic CSS support… I’d keep using CSSEdit for live preview also. The FTP support hasn’t impressed me either.
Comparably TextMate that doesn’t have built-in FTP or editing.
TextMate €39 ≈ $55 without any discounts
Espresso is still cheaper than Coda that IS a full web design package including beefy CSS support and FTP…
Coda $99 without discount
Coda $85 with Transmit discount
While still more pricy than Espresso, the feature completeness of Coda is making me take a 2nd look at Coda… I feel Espresso needs to cost less or at least built-in CSSEdit feature complete.
