    i personaly like dreamwaver. code hints come in handy and it shows you typos in your code
    also it has lots of time saving features

    I took a college HTML/CSS a few years ago, Notepad(+) was the only thing we used. However, if you feel comfortable with HTML/CSS then Dreamweaver is a great time saver like already stated for coding hinting is a great help. If you ever get into the server-side programing then using Dreamweaver can come in handy when using it with a local web-server.

    Have you ever seen a carpenter with jsut one hammer? I don't think so. You use what you are comfortable with and what suits the needs of the job at hand. that being said, never use any of the dreamweaver pre installed javascript.

    Personally I use notepad++ and brackets

    I confess that I use notepad++ less *** brackets is an awesome piece of kit that lets automatically shows you the page as you alter it, without all the fuss of reloading pages all the time

    plus bracketss is maintained by adobe and totally free where as dreamweaver will drain your wallet

    http://brackets.io/

    for those who have never heard of Brackets

    Brackets is an open-source editor for web design and development built on top of web technologies such as HTML, CSS and JavaScript. The project was created and is maintained by Adobe, and is released under an MIT License.

    plus there are over 70 extensions that can easily be added to Brackets like emmet previously known as Zen Coding (, or Hover(Displays a preview when hovering over a color value, gradient, or image filename.

    https://github.com/adobe/brackets/wi...ets-Extensions

    https://github.com/search?q=Brackets...=searchresults

    What is even better is that you can take part in the development is you wish and as such there are plenty of regular updates to keep us on our toes
