Readers’ Choice: Notepad++

Notepad++ easily dominated this category, proving that a well-equipped text editor remains an essential in every programming arsenal. Notepad++ is our pick for the best programing text editor for Windows, and it’s hard to argue with the handy price of free.

Editor’s Pick: Chrome Developer Tools

Chrome’s constant updates don’t just make browsing easier for the casual user: they also incorporate an ever-growing set of useful developer resources. From the built-in Javascript console to performance tweaking, it’s an incredibly handy kit to have around.
