Best code editor for the Mac. Go!

Edit: I just got a new MacBook Pro at work, and I can have my choice of editor. Right now, I'm using a trial of Espresso, and I'm really digging it. However, I'm open to suggestions and will check out all brought forth.

After finally being fed up with Textmate 2's perpetual vaporousness, I switched to Sublime Text 2 last year and haven't looked back.

Been using PhpStorm for some node.js development. Seems pretty decent.

Let me put on my grumpy old developer hat for a moment....

One of the best things I ever did was stop using any of those visual / GUI based tools. They give a temporary speed increases at the cost of developing actual muscle memory for syntax, typing speed, etc. In other words - you become dependent upon the tool.

I used to use TextMate and loved it while I used it - however development did stall on it a bit but there is a TextMate 2 beta out now.
I've had to help some people who use sublime and while I know some other developers who seem to like it, I wouldn't want to use it.

I would strongly recommend that you use the opportunity to learn a tool like Vim or Emacs (I prefer Vim). If you use brew - you can even install a GUI based version of Vim with 'brew install macvim'. There's also a brand new book (literally) on learning to use Vim that's pretty good  - http://pragprog.com/book/dnvim/practical-vim

Vim is excellent. You don't need brew to get the GUI version though.

I've been using Sublime Text 2 lately with the Vintage and VintageEx packages installed (makes it very close to Vim, but still missing some functionality.

I would like to know more about your thoughts on the state of development tools, but I'm strictly a Windows guy.  I've been using Visual Studio for web dev work for over 4 years, but something that's handy for my own dev work at home would be nice.
