My typical use is to edit HTML and CFM pages from prior projects, and use them to create new ones. So, I rarely use the tools for designing pages provided in this application. I have found the ability to preview a page very useful. I am aware of numerous features in this editor, that simpler editors would not provide. It has proven to be a great fit for my use.

I find it really helpful to cut and paste some of my code, or test out my ideas, using gedit. The software is quick to install and is flexible for use with a lot of different software languages. This is a pure editor that is, in my opinion, the premier notes app for coders.

gedit is very lightweight and intuitive to use- its simplicity is its biggest strength. What you are using here is a pure editor, so it's very much like a more helpful, intelligent version of your basic note-taking application. I find other comparable applications may offer more options, but they are also less intuitive and therefore less efficient for my note-taking needs.
