I tried quite a few editors and always kept going back to joe (very simple text editor). All editors seemed to take too much time to "work them" rather then working the code. And here is where Quanta kicks in. Great editor, with new usefull (not just cool) features being added all the time. I saw new Dreamwaver and IMHO quanta is easier to use and more powerfull.
If you are web developer working in linux enviroment and you are not using latest CVS version of quanta you are missing a lot.
