Five alternatives to Microsoft Notepad

NotepadText editors are a pretty vital part of most IT workers’ kit… so it’s pretty surprising that Microsoft have never gotten around to updating Notepad, the Windows text tool. Benedict at Tech Corner has put together a list of his five favourite text editors (all of them freeware).

The list includes some very popular programs like Notepad++ and PSPad. I would like to have seen my favourite, evolvEd in there too: it’s free and includes loads of shortcuts for adding html tags, dozens of types of syntax recognised and even some templates for various coding languages. Check out the post and see if your favourite editor made the grade.
