Notepad++ 6.2.3 - End of World Edition LOL famous last words!
Reviewing 6.2.2 (Dec 2, 2012)
Reviewing 6.2.1 (Nov 13, 2012)
The fact that I keep coming back to it says it all really ... While it is not as powerful as, say Visual Studio, or even UltraEdit, it is light weight yet powerful ENOUGH. It is based on a text editor component for the language it is written in, so is akin to one of those browsers that uses an embedded IE control (in a way). However, as you can see, they've done a great job of implementing the control and making appropriate additions to it.
5 stars when its installer auto-terminates any running instance and a few other small annoyances are fixed, such as a lack of digital signature.

Life without notepad++ would not be worth living.... Okay, more seriously, I've been using text editors now for 30 years. Notepad++ is the best one for my job as a programmer I've ever used. The only thing I would add would be a LISPy macro engine like EMACs has - it may exist as an extension - there are around a hundred.

If you try it you will keep it - Good & small.
