    For web programming as such, I found Smultron to be the most satisfying (it was even recommended for my college web programming class).

    Do either of those let you open the whole directory like TextMate?

    Smultron's implementation of projects isn't as smooth as TM, but yes it can open a whole directory. However, it doesn't preserve the file structure, it just gives you a huge listed (not nested or anything), and it can take a long time to open a large number of files. I haven't played with TW, but BBEdit–sort of the pro version of TW–has a pretty decent implementation of handling projects/folders.

    I used to use Smultron exclusively, it works well for most things, and it's my recommendation for people looking for a solid free editor.
