MarsEdit 2.0

For a long time I just didn’t get the point of applications like MarsEdit. I think I understood the arguments for such software, but I didn’t feel a need to actually use it. Web-based interfaces weren’t too bad, and I needn’t use them for the actual composition, anyway. Why add another application into the mix? Well, Daniel Jalkut recently released MarsEdit 2.0, and I really respect his work, so I gave it a try. Now I’m hooked. Some things that I thought might be problems ended up being non-issues, and the whole draft-edit-post flow is much smoother than I was expecting. Since I’m not very familiar with previous versions, I’m not sure whether I’ve actually been missing out all these years, but I’m certainly glad to be using it now.
