    Not a bad list. I personally prefer Notepad++ over Notepad2, but then that’s more for the syntax highlighting and programming features than just being a superior replacement to notepad. I’d be very interested to know how the two stack up when opening *HUGE* 1G text file, e.g. database dumps.

    That was Notepad Plus Plus (and it removed the plus symbols)

    Notepad2 has syntax highlighting for quite a few languages – all the ones I need for web work at least (html, css, php, javascript, java). The most vital thing for me is instant loadtime. I use a text editor really often, and there are plenty of richly featured ones but few that open instantly with zero delay.

    I haven’t opened 1GB file with it, might test it out at some point.

    Edit note: I fixed the ++ for you.
