I've had it up to here with Dreamweaver. It's sucky and slow.

I've been looking at sourceforge.net for a replacement for a few hours, but have found nothing remotely like it.

All I want is an application(possibly something like Homesite?) that will help me code in HTML, PHP, and ColdFusion. No WYSIWYG-stuff, just something that will color-code my tags and put when I save my files.

Is there such a dream program for Mac?

Thanks to all

Try jEdit , it isn't as integrated with OSX as I'd like with it being a Java application and all (don't let that put you off by the way despite popular belief Java applications can perform quite well) but it does syntax highlighting, bracket matching, code folding and all that good stuff plus it is absolutely free. :)

You might try Eclipse (eclipse.org). There are various plugins for coldfusion, php, etc. I haven't used it extensively on my Mac's so I can't really give you a good comparison in speed compared to dreamweaver. It has some cool things like code folding that I hope the next version of dreamweaver gets.
