Notepad++ is an excellent text and code editor which is distributed completely free of charge both as freeware and as an open source product. It is excellent for both writing text and editing different types of code such as HTML, PHP or C.

Notepad++ features a tabbed layout, which makes it ideal for working with multiple open files at the same time. Comparing text between different documents is therefore a simple job and done easily by switching between tabs. Each line of text is numbered while hitting the CTRL key along with scrolling with the mouse wheel allows you to zoom into text.

On the coding side of things, NotePad can recognize virtually any type of popular programming language and makes it easier to edit files because of syntax highlighting, something we found useful when working with HTML documents and creating code in PHP.

Notepad++ also features an excellent search and replace tool which is extremely versatile, powerful and useful. When comparing this excellent text editor with many shareware or otherwise paid or free application, Notepad++ blows them all out of the water in terms of functionality.

Apart from the various different programming languages we thought this application was superb for, it is overall a very functional and extremely useful application all around, whether it be as a Windows notepad.exe replacement or simply non-headache inducing programming which coders may experience while using notepad.
