    We all know that there are several HTML editors around these days; some free some not so free. Some great tools some not so great. Some easy to use and so make you wanna pull your hair out by the roots.

    So out of the list in the poll above; what is your favorite HTML editor?

    Personally I LOVE Adobe Dreamweaver; why do I love it so much, that is a pretty good question. I guess because Dreamweaver is the standard for designing websites that I just got used to using it as the primary program for me to design my sites. It's easy for me to use and if I forget something Dreamweaver has a way of smacking me so that I remember what I was trying to put in the code.

    I have also tried Coffeecup HTML Editor; it was decent and compared well to Dreamweaver but there were loads of features missing that I really wanted to have. It was a lot better than some of the other things I had used like NVU though.

    Another one I started using is Notepad++. This is more for hardcore coders; if you are a beginner you will rip your hair out if you use this one. I still use this for making small changes or if I need to fix something but for the initial coding I usually use Dreamweaver.

    I voted for bluefish for I like using it. I have it installed in my XP and also in my ubuntu.
    if you like navigation from folders to folders while inside a software and automatically reads the file once clicked, bluefish is the ideal software to use not just for HTML.

    My favourite is a tie between Dreamweaver and Notepad++.

    I used bluefish on Ubuntu; I already had Dreamweaver on Windows.


    NotePad++
    CoffeeCup Free HTML Editor
    Bluefish

    These are from the main sites so they should be malware free and safe.

    I just use Notepad. Old school. Dreamweaver will fill your page with junk and makes it difficult to edit your page outside of the program, should you wish to.

    I'm not sure what you have been doing but Dreamweaver works very well for me
    I don't have any overloads of stuff on my pages
    and if I want to go back into coffeecup or notepad++ I can do that with ease.

    I think its just a matter of opinion really but to each his/her own.

    I must admit i never got on with Dreamweaver weather it's just the learning aspect of the package who knows but notepad ++ is my favourite because of just two things. One it's got line numbers and two the undo button works very well. :giggle:

    Same as Taz, I don't really get on with Dreamweaver, I don't like the way it doesn't do what I tell it too. I too love Notepad ++ especially how it tells me the line numbers... which originally I never got, until I was coding PHP and Notepad wasn't cutting it when I had to search for lines that I had no numbers for, I also like how it almost 'validates' certain things too :happy:

    Not really. It's for any coding at all If you rely on dreamweaver, then, you aren't coding, you're letting it code for you.

    The best way to learn is to jump right in and learn the language, and not use a WYSIWYG editor that generates horrible code which makes me have a seizure every time I see it.


    Notepad++ master race.

    I don't use the design view (WYSIWYG), I always use the code view
    I don't let Dreamweaver code for me and I don't rely on it, I used to use coffeecup which didn't even have a design view.
    I even use bluefish which is a lot like notepad++ so I don't rely on Dreamweaver

    I use Notepad++ (and Eclipse when I code in PHP ate the same time).
    It's free and simple to use.
    I've never liked Dreamweaver as in my opinion, it makes something simple much more complicated.

    Same here. Also using simply Notepad, maybe because I'm not doing major projects in HTML so it is sufficient for my needs. I did play around with Dreamweaver a little as well.

    In my opinion, Dreamweaver is overrated.
    I never liked it.
    HTML is simple, so a simple editor is more than enough.
    I use Notepad++ most of the time, sometimes just Notepad.

    I always use Notepad++, I have never had any problems with it that would make me want to rip my hair out. It is a very nice editor.

    I mainly use Adobe Dreamweaver but I often open files up in Notepad++ for some quick editting. I do like Dreamweaver but am aware that it doesn't always code things perfectly, so I always check what it has created.

    I use Notepad++ for everything, used to use Dreamweaver but it got too expensive for my liking.

    I use Notepad++ as well. It is quite a good software for experienced users as well as new users. I used Adobe Dreamweaver in my school and college but I never liked it.

    I found Notepad++ by accident once and now use it regularly.
