And use visual aids to reduce errors and speed up site development. On the other hand, *Notepad++** is detailed as "Free source code editor and Notepad replacement". Notepad++ is a free (as in "free speech" and also as in "free beer") source code editor and Notepad replacement that supports several languages. Running in the MS Windows environment, its use is governed by GPL License.

Adobe Dreamweaver and Notepad++ can be primarily classified as "Text Editor" tools.
