  • Pros: 

    live preview

    Cons: 

    a bit slow but that's ok. how fast can you code anywyas

    You see what you code live and also clicking on the elements on live preview takes you to that part on the code. That is dealbreaker for me

How'd a text editor get to 39MB download and 119MB install?
"Adobe has just released version 1.0 of Brackets, its free open-source text editor that’s built in HTML, CSS and JavaScript, for coding HTML, CSS and JavaScript."
@erictwillis I've been using sublime, so a comparison between these 2 could be handy: http://kevingimbel.com/brackets-...
This is very smooth and light IDE! Totally would recommend to my html-friends! :)
Been using this for a bit now had no idea it wasn't even out of beta yet, it's always been very polished. Favorite feature is the server it opens in a chrome window to do side-by-side live previews. Also has a great hover-highlighting feature between that server window and the codebase in the other window. Maybe in the future we'll see some lighttable-esque "data flows" for JS?
I'm an early user, but I still find myself jumping to other programs for specific tasks. Of course, adding more things sort of takes away from it, but I am hoping the plug-ins take off.
