    "Excellent software, highly recommended"

    August 23, 2012  |   By JoshuaGambrell

    Version: Crimson Editor 3.7

    Pros

    Handles all of my web coding needs in one easy to use, all inclusive program. I still prefer other software for developing offline and mobile apps, but Crimson is great for web development. It is very powerful and highly customizable.

    Cons

    As far as I know, it is no longer officially supported, so it will likely become outdated eventually.

    Other than that, my only big gripe is that I still haven't figure out a way to easily rearrange the order of my tabs. That is a minor inconvenience though, and easily overlooked with all of the positive Crimson Editor brings to the table.

    "Exactly what I needed. Handles SFTP with no re-prompts!"

    June 1, 2011  |   By w3donkey

    Version: Crimson Editor 3.7

    Pros

    This program handles many different languages so I can easily switch between CSS, PHP and JS. Great for any web developer due to its excellent handling of SFTP.

    Cons

    Nothing comes to me right now.

    "Replace them all."

    September 22, 2009  |   By WBSteele

    Version: Crimson Editor 3.7

    Pros

    I use this editor to view and edit all of my web needs and designs. It works with everything I use in webdesign. It is the most complete and friendly editor I have ever experienced.

    Cons

    I wish the Crimson Editor website was still operating. What a program!

    Summary

    I use this editor to view and edit all of my web needs and designs. It works with everything I use in webdesign. It is the most complete and friendly editor I have ever experienced.

    If you use different editors for different jobs, then drop them all and use this editor. This is an amazing program. I highly recommend it to all users.

    I don't write many reviews, but I came here specifically to write this one. Absolutely one of the few programs I use regularly and one that I depend upon. I don't know what I would do without it, now that I have becomed hooked.

    Thank You!

    "Excellent support for all languages!"

    September 3, 2009  |   By mbewers980

    "Not for beginners"

    June 7, 2009  |   By Jeanne321

    Version: Crimson Editor 3.7

    Pros

    I liked nothing.

    Cons

    I'm learning HTML. I could do nothing with this program. Coffee Cup's HTML Editor, on th eother hand, is easy and does just what I need.

    January 20, 2009  |   By aasgha

    Version: Crimson Editor 3.7

    Pros

    I can run my SAS and R programs with it by defining Tools for these two languages.

    Cons

    None that I can think of.

    Summary

    I wish I had come across its capabilitiies earlier; I would not have purchased some other priced editors.

    "Perfect editor w/ built-in FTP client. What else do u want?"

    May 1, 2008  |   By PHPaddict

    Version: Crimson Editor 3.7

    Pros

    -It's FREE!! (actually if this becomes commercial, I think it would cost around $60 or more! thank god it's not)

    -easy to use. clean interface. no annoying things

    -amplified w/ monstrous FEATURES (and it's better than commercial ones)

    -edit remote files directly using built-in FTP client! (actually this is the best feature for me. why? it eliminates the need for FTP client like Filezilla or Smart FTP. this is very useful when u r constantly making an update to ur webpage on the fly! making this the only editor you'll ever need!)

    -of course my BIG thanks goes to INGYU KANG. my hats off to him ^_^

    Cons

    I hate it when few ignorant people says "it lacks power blah blah".

    I think they just don't know how to use this editor well. Maybe they thought

    this is a WYSIWYG kind of an application. ***?

    It's their problem now.

    Btw, if u ask me what I don't like about this software...

    I think u already know my answer..
