HomeSite, RIP  JUL 09 2009

Adobe has discontinued HomeSite. Nick Bradbury, HomeSite's creator, has some parting thoughts.

Sometimes in this blog I've made disparaging remarks about HomeSite, but that's not because I disliked it. It's just that it's hard to look at something you created so long ago without seeing all the mistakes that you've learned not to make since then. I'm actually very proud of HomeSite, and very thankful that it enabled me to quit my job and work at home. And, funny enough, HomeSite is also what paid for the home I'm living in now.

All of my web stuff up until mid-2002 was done in HomeSite...it's where 0sil8 thrived and kottke.org was born. I still haven't found a piece of web authoring software that feels as comfortable as HomeSite did back then.
