EditPlus is a full-featured text editor that can also play the role of an advanced HTML editor. Thus it is able not only to replace Notepad, but it can also assist designers and programmers in their new projects.
The interface might trick you into believing that you're actually dealing with a much more advanced tool, but the whole look was made to assist you while taking advantage of its great features.
The main window includes a file browser to help you open text documents on the fly, while the document content is displayed on the right side. It also has some stats usually found in text editors and they include the current line and column.
Leaving the basic text editing tools aside, EditPlus comes with URL highlighting, syntax, word and brace highlighting, as well as with a fully customizable user interface, just to be sure it will perfectly fit your needs.
In addition, it boasts auto completion, word wrap, file encoding, a clipboard monitor, as well as a log file watcher and auto indent.
EditPlus supports not only text and HTML documents, but also Java, PHP, Perl, XML, CSS, Ruby, Python and many others, so it can be really useful while coding. There's also a preview in browser function to allow you to see the changes on the fly.
To sum things up, EditPlus is a pretty decent utility that can successfully replace the old Notepad. It comes with a strong feature set and is well suited for both novice and expert users, as it can edit simple text files or write complex code in one of the supported programming languages.
