I’ve been using Ecto as my main blog-editing application for a long time now.

I wasn’t completely happy with the upgrade to version 2.x – the rich text editing seemed clumsy to me when I wanted control over the html, and it really bugged me that I needed to go all the way up to the menu to insert a link to the url from the clipboard – well, ok I know there’s a cmd-U keyboard control for that, but who remembers that when they need it?

So even though I installed version 2.x on my Powerbook, I decided to stick with version 1.x on my iMac at work.

But I just installed the latest update, 2.3, on my laptop. It easily allows setting the default editing mode to html instead of rich text, and there’s a little dropdown list at the bottom of the editing window that lets me get to inserting a link from the clipboard – that’s enough to make me happy.

All of the new graphics look fresh and friendly. I think I’ll upgrade my iMac tomorrow.
