    "Current Je suis version is a virus and deletes ur files"

    January 15, 2015  |   By Falcon_CMH

    Version: Notepad++ 6.7.4

    Pros

    No pros exist this is a virus.

    Cons

    A virus do not use

    Summary

    Cannot believe the website owner developer leaves this version for unsuspected loyal users. I will be removing and never using this editor again. It deletes files that were left open in the editor when it is opened first time after updated to this version. It also cannot read network drives. Who knows whatever else virus code it has installed on my machine. I am very upset.

    "Simply the best. Always."

    November 19, 2014  |   By mikepopper

    Version: Notepad++ 6.6.9

    Pros

    It's definitely the best HTML editor ever. Unbeatable, a true classic.

    Cons

    Frankly, none.

    "Hard to find a better editor"

    October 30, 2014  |   By DynV

    Version: Notepad++ 6.6.9

    Pros

    There's really nothing missing.

    Cons

    Perhaps some more languages could be added. Although a bunch of the most popular languages is set up for syntax highlighting. Even with this slight shortcoming there's a workaround, as one can make a user defined language.

    Summary

    Of course there's editor suite with documentation, contextual help, auto-complete, tool integration (compiler for programming, interpreter for scripting, etc.), etc. But removing everything else from those fancy packages and only keeping the editors, you'd be hard pressed to find something better than NPP (how I shorten this software name).

    There's--some--auto-completion, browser launchers, an integrated FTP client and macro but I doubt this software make a claim to be more than a simple editor, which it does really well.

    "Great Text Editor"

    October 19, 2014  |   By scarycell

    Version: Notepad++ 6.6.9

    Pros

    It has many features; it is a tabbed program, user friendly, supports many programming languages. AND IT IS FREE. (As in "free speech" and also "free beer")

    Cons

    Really can't think of any.

    Summary

    Great for people new to programming and more advanced users. I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a good, free text editor.

    "Excellent tool for my needs"

    June 2, 2014  |   By lenecby

    Version: Notepad++ 6.6.3

    Pros

    Tabbed files for easy navigation between multiple files. Great basic text and html editor.

    Cons

    It would be nice if it handled larger files better. The program can bog down for me sometimes.

    "Fast, Versatile, Fully Customizable! LOVE IT!"

    March 23, 2014  |   By luminaia

    Version: Notepad++ 6.5.5

    Pros

    I make my living with it. It does everything I want it to do - from coding html, php, javascript, auto-syncing with the server, search and replace through multiple files (very fast), countless plugins, easily customizable... I can't say enough. Loads quick, very very rarely crashes. Take the time, learn it's ins and outs. Customize it for you. Consider using it with Texter (auto complete 3rd party tool) for the ultimate coding platform.

    Cons

    Would like a slightly more advanced FTP plugin. The NPPFTP plugin is good, but would love to have a bulk file upload option.

    "Worst of edit text file there is only text editor crush"

    August 23, 2013  |   By mauropellizzer

    Free, much functionality, good for developing

    Crush! Simply crush, even without a dissector running and you loose 30 mins of work
    It is slow with large file
    No binary editing

    It is a free version of the well know super editor, but with crush and no auto recovery

    Really a great tool to write html codes, it will inform you the pairs of the codes and also you can easily find the error.
