“Bean is lean, fast, and uncluttered. If you get depressed at the thought of firing up MS Word or OpenOffice, try Bean.
If you use Text Edit but have to jump through hoops just to get a word count or change the margins, try Bean.
If you desire a simple, low-pressure writing environment, try Bean.”
I am not sure where I stumbled upon Bean, but it’s a really neat word processor. It’s like a beefed up version of TextEdit. Bean even allows you to open up Microsoft Word documents. Bean has built-in spell checking, word completion, live word count, floating windows, auto-saving, easy to use menus and much more.
Bean is a free open source application. You can download it from here.
