Not very powerful, just a glorified text editor. Does not
promote web application development.

Didn't tested it on windows, but on the screenshot page there is a screenshot of running Bluefish on windows using cygwin.

I use it constantly!
Really easy to use, automatically generates templates!
and practically teaches you CSS, it's lovely.

Very good editor; could do with code completion though, so I'll try aptana

I've used it to create/edit HTML and XHTML at least one day per week (under Linux) for almost two years now. Is it a Dreamweaver replacement? No, it's not supposed to be (not WYSIWYG). Does it deliver on what it promises? Definitely.

esxpecially the latest 1.3 releases put Bluefish in front of most other text editors. Code completion, in-line spellcheck, in-line function reference etc. Much improved compared to 1.0

Bluefish definitively improves your productivity compared to many other IDE's. I tried netbeans, dreamweaver, ultraedit and more, but Bluefish is the winner for me!

really easy to set up HTML for CSS mabye better to use an editor with WYSIWYG.
