Among the wide variety of code editors available in the market, EditPlus stands out from most of its competitors thanks to its FTP support, its impressive set of features, its built-in browser, and the long list of languages it supports. Each of them has its own syntax highlighting, and you are free to extend the list by submitting your own syntax files for new languages.

EditPlus is not a free text editor, and that’s probably the only reason why EditPlus is not always on top of the list of the most popular and widely used text editors. Many programmers and web editors find inferior but free code editors sufficient to accomplish their tasks, pushing more comprehensive tools like EditPlus down on the list. Their loss – this excellent text editor offers a wealth of features that make the entire coding experience less tedious, while saving you precious time. Besides, it allows for a much higher level of customization than many (if not all) of its competitors, as you can submit to the developers not only your own syntax files, but also custom auto-completion and cliptext files to make EditPlus work and look exactly as you need.

You can work on multiple files at a time thanks to its tabbed interface and overlapplabe windows, each with its own syntax highlighting. By default, the program includes syntax files for HTML, CSS, PHP, ASP, Perl, C and C++, Java, JavaScript, and VBScript. EditPlus is also well known for its FTP support (including SFTP and FTPS), which will allow you to send your code files to a remote server right away. Its built-in browser is also a great asset – you can use not only to preview local web pages but also to surf the Web as you’d do with your regular browser without having to leave the program.

Add to these the usual time-saving features (such as the HTML toolbar for common HTML tags, the auto-completion and auto-indentation features, or the cliptext window for quicker access to common text fragments) and you’ll see with EditPlus is one of the best-valued code editors out there.

Been using this for decades for HTML coding. Small footprint, all the features I need, and top-notch customer service too. When a forest fire destroyed my computer and house they were extremely helpful in getting a new copy of the software to me. A great program and wonderful people.

I find EditPlus really useful when messing around with various text based file formats. It's simple to use but has plenty of really useful features that you won't find in many other text editors.
