"Best" is of course dependent on what you want to do in particular.

Personally, I use Brackets (http://brackets.io/) along with the SFtpUpload, spell-check and UTF8 converter extensions.

Note that if you're using it on Ubuntu 16.04 or later (or equivalent offpsring distros), you need to pre-install libgcrypt11 (e.g. from here).

BlueGriffon is popular. I still prefer Emacs myself though. Again, "best" is highly subjective.

i need to edit markdown, html, css and sometimes php to "develop" my "web".
so any good code editor that has syntax highlighting for these and does not get much in the way, is good.
happens to be geany for me (no need for advanced features).
if you want to spare some credit, i think sublime is really good.

if you are refering to WYSIWYG editors, some may still exist but basically they are on the way out. you cannot develop the web of 2017 on those.

I like SciTE. Supports syntax highlighting for multiple languages, is fairly lightweight and very customizable.
