about Fraise Jun 2011

This is perfect text-editor for daily use. I have tried dozen of editors on mac and I should say, this one is closest to my ideal. using notepad++ on a PC I thought I won't find anything as simple(mine np++ looks very simple), yet powerful for mac os, but this piece of software is AWESOME!!!
very user-friendly (not cluttered with crap like other nix-based editors)
nice encoding support, multiple docs, splitting, highlighting and so much more
importantly it has native Mac OS GUI, which is not buggy and eye-candy looking like

Thanks you guys for this amazing text editor! Great job.
