Sublime Text 2

Sublime Text 2 went gold a couple of weeks ago, and I would urge you to give it a spin. For straight-ahead web development, Coda 2 is still my weapon of choice, but Sublime Text 2 is lovely for PHP, Ruby, the odd bit of Java when not using the Eclipse behemoth, etc. For the last twelve years the venerable TextPad has always been my stable editor in my Windows virtual machines, but guess what? Sublime Text 2 has supplanted it.

A great tool, well worth the (small) price. And it does Linux too.

(Talking of Coda 2, if you use it be sure to check out the tips on the Panic blog: Top 20 Secrets of Coda 2).
