    What's your favorite web editor? Over the last few years we've pretty much changed to Expressions Web 4 but still do some work in Dreamweaver. We've found out for our needs EW4 works much better for us than DW so we're not going to upgrade it past cs5.5, my favorite still being DW8 & cs3.
    All new client sites are being built in EW4 and all new rebuilds for clients sites that have been with us for years are being rebuilt in EW4.

    I think they're both good editors but at the same time we're tired of paying Adobe their prices when we can get EW4 much cheaper and works much better for us especially when we're having to purchase 17 seats. For us we found out that EW4 writes much better and cleaner code than DW and has more functionally, but that just us.

    This is not to hear how great either or are. Just curious to your thoughts and why.

    NP++ because I don't trust WYSIWYG editors. And I prefer everything hand-coded, unless I'm using CMS.

    Visual Web Developer Express 2010 (it's not a WYSIWYG editor, either...it's a text editor).

    I prefer Sublime Text 2 over Notepad++ if you want the text editor route. If you're working on a unix or mac machine then it's probably more efficient to use vim or emacs directly in the terminal.

    It's nice to see the diversity of editors that this community uses. We also use Notepad++ and Visual Web Developer. (free download here for VWD 2008)

    I've seen some knock down drag out discussions on editors on forums before but my opinion is use what ever you like and works best for you. We use which ever one it takes to get the job done for the client.

    Thanks everyone for your input.

    I agree 100% it's all about what you are comfortable with and find most efficient!

    My 13 year old niece and myself got stuck with the loonie shift tonight. She's in her office playing around with this.

    I second Sublime Text 2, though I have used Aptana 3 and it's pretty good.
