Adobe Dreamweaver is one of the most well-known professional WYSIWYG web developer tools. An Indian friend has recommended it to me, and I know that his choice is reasonable because of its support for a great number of scripting languages (PHP, ASP, CSS and more), Adobe Dreamweaver becomes the powerful and fully featured code editor. It provides users with ability to edit the code directly in the scripting window and to see the changes in the WYSIWYG editor and help them to avoid errors and which allows them to easily experiment with different sets of code.

This editor has features you won't find anywhere else, which can greatly improve your editing experience or ability to fix bugs and add new features.


7. Dabblet

Dabblet is another fast and user-friendly editor for HTML and CSS only. What makes me impressed about Dabblet is its split into three tabs: CSS & Result, HTML & Result and Result, which provides flexibility and focus on what you are currently doing. But perhaps the nicest feature of the editor is that Dabblet can save all of your work to GitHub gists. This both makes sharing your work with others easier and ensures that you will still keep your data on GitHub in case Dabblet doesn’t exist someday.


8. CSS Lint

CSS Lint will amaze developers by its basic syntax checking and applying a set of rules to the code that look for potential inefficiencies and errors. It lets you know that some of the areas may have errors. You merely paste in your source CSS and choose which rules you'd like enforced. Click the lint button and CSSLint will start eroding your codebase. Then, developers can get the feedback every time they commit code and help them fix problems. It cannot deny that Css Lint is a great tool to control your code.

Thimble editor offers simple tools like the syntax hints helper, spell checker, preview and text sizes… The strong point of this tool is that mistakes or broken code are highlighted.
