    Is there anything that works good for you guys besides ol' Notepad?

    Something preferably that doesn't fuck with code like Frontpage did, and how some of the other big name utilities do. :wiggle:

    For what language?

    I do a lot of my web stuff in Crimson Editor just because it's simple, free, does FTP...and I'm just used to it.

    Could also check out e (e-texteditor.com) it's new and still has a few bugs but it's basically TextMate for Windows. Pretty much kicks ass once you get the hang of it.

    I'm getting into primarily web programming languages, such as PHP/MySQL, .Net, ASP, and Ajax. I've tried Dreamweaver before, but it seemed too bloated. I like Notepad, but want something with a few more bells and whistles. E looks like a cool option...do you think it will fit my needs, Zac?

    E will be a little bit more bloated and it's not free which sucks. Crimson Editor (crimsoneditor.com) and Notepad++ (notepad-plus.sourceforge.net) are both free. I'd say give em all a shot and pick the one you like best though.

    Dreamweaver FTW

    But if you want something light and simple like notepad, download notepad++

    It color-codes and auto-indents, along with a ton of other stuff

    I'm going to give a few of these a try and get back at this thread.

    I tried out E last night and it seems bloated for even Unix style app for Windows...kinda surprised me.

    crimson editor or eclipse are my choices - next to notepad of course. People think you're a hardcore programmer when you tell them you use straight up notepad.

    Installed Notepad++. This looks like what I've been looking for. Customizable, lightweight. Thanks for the suggestions, dooders :bigthumb:

    I'm a software programmer, and even though my company has licenses for expensive IDE's, I use Notepad++ every day :) For all you guys using Notepad++, check out the Ruby Blue theme. It is teh win.

    I use DW for regular programming jobs, editpad pro for quickie edits.

    This is also a good program that I would probably use if I didn't use DW.
