Although average users probably won't feel the need to switch to this free text-editing program, folks who regularly work with code may want to keep it around. Win32Pad features most of the basic editing tools found in similar programs, such as Word Wrap, Find, Replace, Cut, and Paste.

The program's main difference from simple editors such as WordPad is that it can open alternate types of documents for editing, including HTML, Visual Basic, JSP, PHP, XML, and CSS. In our tests with multiple types of documents, the program worked find, making it a worthy and no-cost addition to the toolboxes of Web developers.
