Notepad2 is another small, fast notepad replacement with some unusual features. It includes zoom, rectangular selection, regular expressions, and more.

I don't care for this all that much. Akelpad is more user friendly for me though that mod version works well with nfo's.
Nice review balderstrom.

While I do use this editor, it's certainly not my primary editor. And comparing Notepad2 to UltraEdit32 is one of the most ludicrous statements I've ever read.
The second-most ludicrous would be comparing to Notepad++ - which is a great feature-rich editor, that may or may not crash for no reason whatsoever. From VAX to Unix to DOS to Windows and Linux, I've used dozens upon dozens of Editors, and Notepad++ is the only one (of two) that has crashed.
Notepad2 is a decent 'quick-edit' feature-light editor that has a few annoying quirks that the dev doesn't want to fix, but at least it has never crashed. If you require heavy-lifting and extensive customization, you should look elsewhere. And if stability isn't important to you, but free is, go for Notepad++.
My full-featured editors of choice, EmEditor, and CodeLobster PHP.
Notepad-like editors: Notepad2, Ted's Notepad (v6 beta), and good-old Notepad.
For ~$40 EmEditor (perpetual license, so far) stomps all over (feature-wise) the outrageously priced UltraEdit32, and the "free" Notepad++.

I use Notepad2-mod but either or are simply excellent

Unless you are hooked on tabs, this is the notepad to have. Lightening fast. Outstanding.
