Madedit-Mod is a cross platform text/hex editor base on MadEdit with a log of critical bug fix from me or other developers. A lot of new features were added, such as Drag-Drop Edit(cross platform), Highlight word, etc.

The reason that I maintained this project is that the author of MadEdit had not worked on it for for a long time and I really like it and need more features.
