Comparison of html editors?

by kaufenpreis / October 17, 2014 12:06 AM PDT

Looking for a comparison of html editors. Preferably a side by side, but any that lists pros and cons would be fine. I would describe my expertise as medium. I can create a working page with just a text editor but I like the flexibilty of writing code, then seeing it wysiwig without having to open another program. Current pay products are bloated. I'm sure dreamweaver, ms expression, and the like work for some people, but they write sloppy code.

Most front-end developers

are moving towards live reloading. You basically use any text editor of your choice -- my personal favorite is Sublime Text -- and every time you make a change to HTML or CSS, it automatically reloads it in the browser.

In other words, the browser should be your WYSIWYG, because it is what the user will get. It also prevents you from editing elements in the "WYSIWYG," because most often than not, it will created bloated code or arbitrary elements.

This gives developers the most flexibility in what editor they use and the most accurate representation of what they've created. You could use something like CodeKit or LiveReload to do what I mentioned.

If you are not an expert in html, then i would suggest do not go for paid stuffs, you can sharp your knowledge via normal text editor or can use free editors as well.

HTML editors

If you know HTML then go for either Adobe Dreamweaver,Microsoft Expression Web or CoffeeCup HTML Editor.
And if are new to this field then use simple editors like Notepad or Textedit.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
