I think Dreamweaver is the best because we haven't a time to use notepad and type all the code with out any hints. Hints makes easy to code html tags and properties even in CSS. Now, we have frame works to make our work more efficient and easy so why should we wast our time in Notepad.

Hello ,

I have been using Notepad++ lately .

But I must say Bluefish new version 2.2 has come a long way since last update .

I just downloaded it yesterday .

And it does handle html5 very well .

Scratch that , kept getting un-viewable htmlPage .

So I am looking at BlueGriffon .

Well, I'm not sure if it counts, but I really like to use Microsoft WebMatrix 3. It makes my work-flow a lot easier. My second is Notepad++.

Is webMatrix free , is its cloud free ? ..vm

TextWrangler (+ Firefox for display) and a wide screen, for Macs. Geany (") for Ubuntu, but it lacks TextWrangler's convenient multi-file search/replace . Free.

I like to use Sublime or Zend Studio. They are the best IMHO.

Without syntax highlighting, brace matching and auto indentation, a simple editor like that is not very useful.

I was using Notepad++ when I started, but since the design is a bit dated, I changed to Visual Studio Code which is very good at debugging and working with.

But it's fast!

Have any of you tried AkelPad? I like it. It is simple, fast and if you need any of that options as highlighting, they are represented as plug-ins, so you can switch them on.

I am using Geany 1.35 on Fedora 28 (I really have to build my new Fedora 30 system).

It does what I need (so far) both for html and xml (for IETF Internet Drafts).

Add a Kensington Expert Optical Track ball with its scrolling wheel to move up and down in a doc easily, and I am set.
