I just got a brand new MacBook, actually this is my first Mac I’m in the awesome process of learning everything related to Mac you know ;) and I’d like to know which editor is better, I just code html, css and a bit of php (wordpress basic) what do you think?

PD: I’m so freaking excited with this machine :D

It’s actually not quite a fair comparison since Coda is much much more then just text editor. It includes version control, FTP , preview (using Webkit/Safari rendering), a build in terminal, simplified CSS entry, books with info and references, and much much more…

If it’s only about text editors, I prefer Textmate over the Coda editor. However, Coda simply rocks as a whole web development environment (and it’s looks super slick not to forget).

I use both on a daily basis.

TextMate, without a doubt. I can code so much quicker in it than Coda thanks to the huge community and all the bundles (and themes).

Coda, however, would probably be better if you need auto-completion when writing HTML and CSS , and it has a built-in FTP client.

As for Windows, E-TextEditor is basically the TextMate for Windows (and supports most TextMate bundles, too!)

My vote would be Coda, but that’s just because I haven’t used TextMate yet and Coda fits in very nicely with my current workflow. ;-)
