CSS (Cascading Style Sheet) the most important and the easiest thing needed in coding a web site and very much helpful to edit your blog template the way you want, CSS comes in many variations like CSS1, CSS2 and CSS3 (It is the latest CSS variation been used these days).

What is CSS?

Its most common application is to style web pages written in HTML and XHTML, but the language can also be applied to any kind of XML document, including plain XML, SVG and XUL.

CSS3

You can easily edit the CSS of any site you want whether you want to edit it live or within the browser or by using some software’s in your system. So, I created a bunch of apps and plugins for both Windows and MacOS by which you can easily edit CSS of your web site or any Blog.

1. Text Mate – It is any MacOS app created by Allan Odgaard in year 2004 that you can use to edit the css and it is one of the best app to edit css where you can simply drag and drop your project and do all the editing you want and save it accordingly. You can open tabs for each documents that makes, your work easier and simpler a WebKit-based HTML shows the live updates you have done in the browser.

2. Panic Coda – If you are looking using Mac and looking for a app which can do all of your things like text editing, file transfer, SVN, CSS, terminal and more than Coda is the best thing that you need.
Coda can do up to 5+ activities like editing, previewing, uploading, and more but the main motive is just creating a Web Site, and if a single application is capable of doing all of your work which is done by around 4-5 application then its just a waste to use those all those application as you need to open around 4-5 windows to do certain tasks whereas you can do all the things in a single windows with the help of Coda.

3. PhpStorm – PhpStorm is the light weight app to edit your HTML/CSS and JavaScript, and the best thing of this app is that it also supports PHP. It is available for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux and support for SVN, CVS, Git, Mercurial, and Perforce. You can look at all the features available in this app here.

There are few more apps and plugins that I haven’t reviewed but really can help you out these are :

MadAppLauncher: Instantly Launch Applications and Folders[Windows]

Majority of the application and file launchers available on the internet work in the same orthodox manner that is you have to open the launcher, type-in the application name and hit the Enter button to launch it. So if you are searching for a way to launch the applications in a pretty quick and effective manner then you should try MadAppLauncher. This particular utility introduces a new concept to launch file/folders and applications, moreover it completes the entire process within one or two clicks. Here is a brief review of this innovative app:

MadAppLauncher Features

Once you are over with the installation, MadAppLauncher will pop-up in the system tray of your computer. Now clicking on the icon will launch the software’s main window and you can also launch it by assigning a shortcut key combo.

MadAppLauncher main window

The first thing that you will come across on MadAppLauncher are rows of empty tabs and boxes, this renders uniqueness to this utility from the other stock file launchers. Rows of empty boxes means that instead of typing the name of the app for launching, users will just have to click on the app box and it will launch instantly keeping the interface minimum.

How Does MadAppLauncher Works?

The working of the program is pretty simple, you just need to put in some apps in the empty boxes and then have to press a keyboard key assigned to that box to open the app. For example, you place iTunes in a box tagged as D, now you can open the app instantly by just pressing ‘D’ button on your keyboard. In total there are 300 boxes meaning that you can populate MadAppLauncher with 300 apps divided in different tabs.

MadAppLauncher main window

How to Populate MadAppLauncher with Apps?

Now next step is that you have to populate the empty boxes, you can simply Drag & Drop the any item from your Windows explorer. Moreover, you can also add items by right clicking on any box and click on ‘Edit’ option.

MadApplauncher App addition

A window will pop-up, you have to add the Target by clicking on the Browse button. Just select the file/folder or application and all the other field will be filled automatically.

There is an Appearance tab as well that allow users to customize the launched application window, that is whether you want the application to be opened on the left of the screen or on the right side.

App Window

You can also assign a Hotkey combination to launch MadAppLauncher itself, open the Settings tab within the MadAppLauncher interface and assign a combination of keys.

For a better streamlined performance, you can assign different kind of applications separate tabs so that they are placed centrally at one spot. For example, you can place all the multimedia softwares and programs on your PC in the first tab of MadAppLauncher.

Overall MadAppLauncher is an amazing application launcher that I think you will surely download once you are gonna read this post. You can download MadAppLauncher from the internet for free.
