Three Linux HTML editors reviewed

An article like this is always going to open up a can of worms. Looks like we should be thankful that we have such a large choice of html editors to suit everyone's tastes.

However just to mention my preference whilst working on large web projects is Aptana. I can do everything I can do in Dreamweaver now including FTP, although it doesn't have WYSIWYG but it has tabs so you can preview the generated html in what ever browser you setup. Although with large projects, WYSIWYG is irrelevant anyway. Aptana also has support for PHP/Ruby and has a load of javascript libraries built in, like prototype and jquery. It's a bit bloated though but is the best I have used for my workflow.

I have tried Quanta over the years but it is just not stable enough. I never got on with Bluefish although I tried and I tried Screem briefly and didn't like it. I use Kate for quick small projects.
