There are several reasons why I prefer to use Crimson Editor. First
of all, the price is right; it is free! Also, I find the syntax highlighting files,
which can be downloaded, for C# and VB.NET code to be very useful. Crimson Editor
lets you add shortcuts that allow you to execute external programs with
arguments. This feature will come in handy later when we want compile and
deploy our web application. A directory and file browser is included that has a
right click menu that contains a Shell Execute command to run any file.
Multiple files can be open at the same time and switching between them is
easily accomplished by the tabs at the top. Crimson Editor also will allow you
to organize the files you choose into projects. There are many more useful
features, but I will let you check them out for yourself. Just search the
internet for Crimson Editor.
