    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++

      Jup Notepad++ for the win in many tasks that included edition codes. Starting from basic thing all way to complex code editing. If something is missing by default you can always find addons

    How can anyone create a list of free editors then exclude Sublime 2 ?? not only is it currently the best editor ( free or paid ) it’s also cross platform compatible including Linux

    There are also other similar editors that you use which are online like codefunc template editor. Although not a true css editor, but you can do the same things as a css editor. If there is interest, I will write a tutorial on how to use it!

    How can anyone create a list of free editors, repeat over 10 times that he is talking about free editors and then deliberately include several editors that are not free?

    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.

    Eu uso o notepad++, pra mim ainda é o mais limpo, recomendo a todos.

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

    I use Notepadd++ and I think is the best free editor out there for web development … you can use it also for JS, php and html (and lots of others … )

    My favourite free PHP, HTML, CSS editor is Codelobster PHP Edition – http://www.codelobster.com

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

    anyone know of a windows editor that fully supports nested css3? all of them i’ve tried can’t handle it yet… (as in they don’t know how to format it, or don’t recognize the nesting correctly)

    @page {

    @top-left { content:”test”; }

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

    Coffee cup is a rocking software must try it out.

    Please remove the word FREE from the title. Most of the editors listed in this post are not free!
