    Notepad++ for the win! Have tried a few others, as well as paid editors and always come back to it!

      Try Sublime Text 2, it’s much better than notepad++ ;]
      Well, i’m using ST2 but still like N++

    I agree. For example, Rapid CSS is €19.85; TopStyle price is US $79.95 per single user license; Stylizer 5.x is CAN $79.99. It’s really not hard to find out if you need to pay for them. And 30-days free trial does not equal free.

    It feels a little deceptive in order to drive traffic to the site. But what is really does is just make me less trustful of other articles on this site, sadly.

    +1 for Sublime Text 2 – It is young but very useful!

    I know this was written months ago, but Stylizer is not a free product.

    Try Sublime Text 2. It’s very interesting with some amazing plugin such as Emmet, Nettus+ Fetch…
