    I've been using Espresso and CSSEdit before that... but looking for another option.

    I now use Atom as my all-around text and code editor for all but JVM-based projects; plug-ins for CSS validation, HTML preview, etc. abound.

      I have been using Atom for more than a year. So far the best editor for coding. The only downside is the size and how much RAM it requires to run.

  3. Stylebot is a great Chrome Extension that allows you live preview css code snippets for a live website. Navigate to your site, go to "Advanced" then paste in your code. I use this is conjunction with right-click, "Inspect" to analyze and play with CSS changes quickly.

    Chrome Dev Tools have gotten really powerful since Paul Irish started working on it. I like to test and adjust CSS in-browser before bringing it back to VS Code.

    VS Code is beautifully designed to handle not only CSS, but all your development needs. It's my IDE of choice right now!

    Simple, open source text editor with live preview. Make changes to CSS, SASS and HTML and you'll instantly see those changes on screen.
