Komodo Edit is an excellent, free source code and HTML editor which supports all of the most common programming languages of the web including PHP, Perl, Ruby, JavaScript along with markup languages like HTML and CSS.

The interface is lovely and can be customized by the user. Multiple files may be opened simultaneously with the left panel displaying a list of files in a tree-like list while the panel on the right side is where the editor is. The menu bar containing File, Edit, Help, etc. is hidden but can be activated with the "Alt" key.

The program is pretty advanced and includes all of the best tools for writing clean code. The intuitive user interface proves efficient along with Komodo Edit's functions like autocomplete, syntax highlighting and syntax checking. With the latest updates, Komodo Edit also introduces the ability to track changes with a built-in diff tool.

In addition to coding, Komodo Edit also includes a Markdown Viewer which allows you to preview HTML in real time while the split view is activated.

Komodo Edit also supports macros, bookmarks, design templates and tools for using regular expressions (regex). Autocomplete for third party libraries like jQuery is also possible.

In conclusion: Komodo Edit certainly is a powerful editing and authoring tool for people who code, script and build web applications.

Komodo Edit can open LaTeX documents, edit LaTeX documents, edit PHP files, edit HTML documents and highlight syntax.
