Few notable features:
  • Integrate external programs such as make, lint, weblint, xmllint, tidy, javac, or your own program or script to handle advanced text processing or error detection
  • Integrate external filters of your liking, pipe your document (or just the current selected text) through sort, sed, awk or any custom script
  • Unlimited undo/redo functionality
  • In-line spell checker which is programing language aware (spell check comments and strings, but not code), requires libenchant during compilation2
  • Auto-recovery of changes in modified documents after a crash, kill or shutdown
Complete list of features in this link, http://bluefish.openoffice.nl/features.html.

One thing I miss in Bluefish is that it does not have native support for git.

I tried the link to Bluefish and got an error. The link includes the period at the end, remove the period and the link works.

I have a problem with Frontpage ( I own two retail copies) being able to update some newer extensions. I will try bluefish to see if my authoring is less of a hassle. I've never used the newer versions of Frontpage and don't know if the old extensions would work with them.

I thought FrontPage was done and gone a long time ago? It is no longer supported by Microsoft. You won't find FP extensions supported anywhere as they are considered security risks.
