While high powered word processors are great for drafting a letter or writing a report, they're not so helpful when what you need to generate is a pile of plain text, like when you create a new web page or write a bit of code for your next software development project. For that, you're going to be much better served by a text editor.

Tincta is a text editor for your Mac. As you'd expect, it saves its files off as plain-old text files, perfect to use when coding a website or writing the next great desktop app. It features syntax coloring, which makes it easier to keep track of what's going on in front of you. Line numbering lets you keep an eye on where you are in the file, and is helpful in resolving errors. And it's got bunch of additional features built in, including the ability to change the case of your text, tweak end-of-line characters, search and replace, check spelling, and more.

A free download, Tincta is a Mac application. It runs under OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard). It includes a Green License, which asks that you do something about climate change or pollution in exchange for using the software.
