    What is the best web development text editor/tool?

    Good day everyone, I'm a newbie in web development/design. As a beginner, my progress in develop something always being distracted with the thought of "What tools other programmer use?, Am doing the right way?.. bla blaa..".

    Straight to my question, what is the best tool for me to use to develop website?

    Currently I'm using Sublime Text 3 but I want to change into editor like Dreamweaver, Netbeans, etc. Sorry if my english is bad. Thank you. Cheers.

    Sublime Text is fine. Editors like Dreamweaver have a lot of "crutches" that will stunt your growth as a developer. If you're looking at tooling, look more at the technology you're using to build and what tools you can use to enhance that.

    For instance, many developers are using CSS preprocessors like Sass or LESS. These preprocessors give you programmatic tools that help you write more elegant styling. Nesting, variables and mixins open up worlds you didn't know existed.

    More examples exist, so if you can let us know what all you're doing, we can suggest more.

    As Ron said, it's hard to tell without knowing what it is you're doing.

    https://www.visualstudio.com/vs/visual-studio-express/ <-- great editor for most programming languages/frameworks, and it's free. It has a horrible name (Visual Studio) because it isn't a WYSIWYG editor. It's also not very good for PHP, so if you're going down that road you won't want to use this. For HTML/CSS and especially Microsoft technologies (ASP.net in particular), it kicks ***.
