A marvel that is mainly made by one person, this Notepad application is a coders dream, and it also works very well for anything you might want to use a Notepad for...

If I had any complaints, it is that it always assumes to save in its program file, versus defaulting in the root of a hard drive, or a document folder.

Very stable, and pleasing to use...

Beats all the editors I tried (UltraEdit, Crimson, Eclips, Editplus, etc...). A must have !

It may be a professional editor. But it's kinda complicate to do simple things. For example, I couldn't do to replace a double CR/LF with just a single CR/LF.

It it great, but have a small problem with Korean. While typing a character I can't see it. That is only happen for the first character after space. Other than that, it is great.

This is an outstanding free code editor. It reads and color codes the code for most software languages. There are an abundance of useful plug-ins for it too. It is great for both beginners and advanced programmers. However, it doesn't do so well with plain text files, so I would still use the old Notepad for that.

It works better than a lot of costly editors. I know because I use over 20 programming environments on a daily basis.

Notepad++ puts high-dollar software to shame and has the best syntax highlighting in my opinion.

Amazing software loaded with features. I find new features every day.

PS: Ctrl+G: Go dialog has "Go" and "I'm going nowhere" XD
