If you are a programmer or web developer, you would probably use your favorite text editor that you are familiar with but maybe that text editor might not be the best or does not have the features that other text editors have. For many years, I was using TextPad as my favorite text editor doing web programming until I discovered newer text editors such as TextMate and Atom have richer features that I need for my daily coding and editing. In this article, I will list number of free popular text editors that you can use to code.
