Obvious Blurbish is obvious

I really hate this quote:

"The result is a tool designed from the ground up for coding and customisable in all manner of ways."

Straight outta their glowing self-descriptions and ridiculous. What 'new' editor written by coders is *not* going to claim "designed ... for coding". And what editor is written now without being customisable?

Should I now go whiffling off and install 1.0 to see if it can _now_ manipulate columns of text across multiple lines? You know, like when you are trying to make code readable as a self-imposed requirement? Or more of the other features I use daily that are a fraction of what e.g. Vim provide?

Not all bad, though, unlike Adobe's Brackets, which can't 'bounce' between brackets. Another editor that "... is a tool designed from the ground up for coding and customisable in all manner of ways."
