Argh. It'd be nice if we could still at least see the options after voting.

Anyway - bluefish was up there because I voted for it and it's not WYSIWYG and I'm sure Quanta was too, and it's not. If screem was up there, it's not. Gedit and kedit aren't 'web development' editors. They're text editors with a few html features. (Not saying that as a knock - just saying they're a different category.)

Maybee, but I just think that any tool a webmaster can use to make a webpage is a web development tool. Perhaps Bluefish isn't realy a WYSIWYG editor, while you can't se what you've made, it still has grafic functions for inserting tabels and changing fonts (two clicks made me this: <font size="-1"><font size="+1"></font></font>).

definately Quanta+, I can have 1000 files in a Quanta project, do regular expression replaces in those 1000 files and not even have to open them, make my own toolbars and shortcut key combinations, it's definately a good production environment. Bluetooth might be good for small html-only websites, but for big production sites with PHP there is no better choice than Quanta +, but then again, I havent tried Bluefish for about 18 months so i dont know what i'm talking about..........

Quanta! Definitely.

It's the editor for you.
It's the editor for me.
It's the editor for a new generation.

Well maybe I'm overstating but......
I have tried the rest and Quanta is definitely the best.
Accept no substitutes.

It's a whole Quantum + leap forward, and developing so fast it's hard to imagine how good it will be this time next year.

On another tack it's great to see that people love so many other editors. vi and emacs seem like they will live forever in one manner or another.

Oo.org's web writer is actualy pretty good for one-off pages when you're feeling lazy.

None of these can compare to dreamweaver. So if someone wants to make a web on linux it's time he learned to do so on a txt editor

Bluefish for the simplicity of it. Even though I just installed GTK 2.6 and can't get it's latest version to run, the old version works just as good as vi, plus I like how it reminds me of 'other' Integrated Development Environments by color coding things more eloquently than a simple text editor.

I say let the purists have their way too, as long as your making web pages there will be something for the rest of us to do.
