Backblaze creates a zip file of all your files for you to download, thus decreasing the amount of data you need to download and increasing the speed of the download since it's one connection instead of multiple that need to be opened and closed for a list of files. See More
Sublime Text provides several features for making the editor itself comfortable to work with: Minimap provides a top-down view of the file, eliminates tunnel-vision Support for TextMate themes and window decoration themes Distraction-Free mode Vintage Mode - (vim-style editing) Everything is easily accessible from the keyboard. See More
Sublime Text, while being lighter-weight than an IDE, still supports many IDE features. Text from the current file is used to provide autocomplete Project Support (folder browsing, scoped history, build-system declarations) Refactoring support is emulated through multi-select, project-wide find & replace, and regular expression search. Syntax-aware selection and GoTo for quickly jumping to locations in the project. Snippets & Macros - A Python console for everything else. See More
Sublime Text supports a large number of languages and general text editing features out of the box, but its most useful feature is its extensibility - Sublime Text uses TextMate's syntax declaration files to support new languages, has all its menus and keybindings generated from JSON files, and can be scripted to add new features using Python. If Sublime Text doesn't support a desired language or feature, it's usually not long before someone implements it themselves - examples include the plugin package manager and the 'open in browser' command.

Also is very specific on how a license can be used and has restrictions on the kind of license you own. Plus for the users you have spent the time and money for purchasing a license and registering it, each time the app is opened, it always asks you to re-enter your license. Although they have provided a workaround if you read the support documentation - which I added the excerpt in the source link. See More
Although they make this seem very unclear while browsing through all the pages from each menu item. I can only see a reference from the main download page, then clicking on Sublime Text 3 Beta, and going through all the changelings below the download link (I added the excerpt within the source link).

Moom adds an overlay zoom button to the corner of all apps which allows any app to go full screen or be placed to certain sections of the screen (such as the top, bottom, or sides). This works even on apps that do not normally allow for full screen views. See More
Everything you need to get a project started is included with CodeKit. Thanks to the professional support, different components of the workflow pipeline are guaranteed to play nicely with each other without you needing to do the research on how to configure them. More advanced features that may require extra configuration to set up with other workflow wrappers are set up out of the box in CodeKit, like automatic browser updating, linting, and source maps.

When working with others on git, the config file can totally wreck your workflow. If you push up then it changes everyone else's config file, but if you don't push up it becomes very difficult for future developers who need to back track to work out how to use it. See More
You can navigate your project directory, and use a menu form to set up how it gets compiled without needing to read configuration documentation, or deal with configuration errors. On top of that, file watching and recompilation is built in with no extra configuration needed. See More
CodeKit has live updating built in and will update monitored files across multiple browsers and devices, and refresh CSS without a new page load. Other workflow wrappers have live updating, but they require extra configuration. With CodeKit, everything is set up for you so you can get it up and running in no time at all. See More
CodeKit has a clean and intuitive graphical user interface out of the box. Most other tools in this category run as command line utilities or require unsupported third-party plugins to run with a GUI. The CodeKit GUI makes it easier to navigate and manage the various components of your project with helpful UIs like dropdowns, and views that provide extra details without having to run a separate command.
