    Here’s a few that I’ve used before:
    Aptana Studio (Has FTP and Text Editing, if that’s what you’re looking for)
    Notepad++ (Super Awesome Windows Text Editor)
    Sublime Text 2 (Awesome Text Editor)
    WinSCP (Pretty good FTP Client)
    Filezilla (Another FTP Client)

    I use Notepad++ for editing and then Filezilla for uploading.

    I love Codelobster ( )

    Sublime has a plugin for FTP but it’s a trial. $16 or something for the full version which doesn’t seem to be competitive.

    I am absolutely loving Sublime Text 2. I never liked Notepad++.

    # September 6, 2012 at 3:50 pm

    why do you like Sublime Text 2 more than Notepad++

    # September 6, 2012 at 7:31 pm

    @ChristopherBurton — competitive or not, Sublime SFTP is a great plug-in — easy to set up and use, with many nice options. It is a boon for ST IMO and I find the $16 price reasonable for the functionality added.

    I use Notepad++, it’s a very flexible text editor but it doesn’t highlight a few css properties.

    When I used Windows I loved Notepad++. There is also a really cool editor in the making that I love called InType. Although it falls short because it’s missing some functionality. It’s just so pretty!

    I’m used to Notepad++ and FlashFXP in Windows.Notepad++ is nice to those who like to click around(normally in Windows),as well as those who love keyboard shortcuts.

    I tried several editors / IDEs recently and the best free one I found is Netbeans.

    FTP is integrated since it is an IDE. It has a lot more features which you might not need initially but which might turn out to be useful once you try them.

    Sublime Text 2 has some sort of “infinite trial”, but it is not free (and apparently you are supposed to pay for some plugins also)

    I’m using Notepad++, too. It’s simply great, and you can expand it with highlighting for LESS and SASS as well.

    # December 28, 2012 at 1:44 pm

    Notepad++ and Filezilla. If you go with N++ checkout the plugins and customization it is hard to beat.

    Also if you are getting into SASS then checkout [Scout for SASS]( “”)

    I’d be curious to know how many of the Notepad++ fans have used Sublime Text 2. I’ve used both, and ST2 wins it hands down for me.
