If you are looking for the Best HTML Editor you have to know what is HTML (HyperText Markup Language) we use it for creating Web pages, describes the structure of a Web page & consists of a series of elements.

What is HTML Editor? 

An HTML editor is a program for editing HTML, It can be controlled with any text editor. We can create and modify Web Pages by using simple HTML editors or using professional HTML editors. However, for learning HTML we recommend a simple text editor like Notepad (PC) or TextEdit (Mac).

Types of Editors

There are two main editors for HTML: textual and WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) editors.

Text editors

Text editors intended for use with HTML usually provide at least syntax highlighting. Some editors additionally feature templates, toolbars and keyboard shortcuts to quickly insert common HTML elements and structures. Wizards, tooltip prompts and autocompletion may help with common tasks.


WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) HTML editors provide an editing interface which resembles how the page will be displayed in a web browser. Because using a WYSIWYG editor may not require any HTML knowledge, they are often easier for an inexperienced computer user to get started with.

List of Best HTML Editors

We all have different tastes, and when it comes to choosing a platform for our work, where we will spend a lot of time on, it’s important to pick one that best suits us. Each editor has the same basic features. However, some provide more visual representation than others, more additional packages to install and so on.

3. Sublime Text


    Use Goto Anything to open files with only a few keystrokes, and instantly jump to symbols, lines or words.


    Using information from syntax definitions, Sublime Text automatically generates a project-wide index of every class, method and function. This index powers Goto Definition, which is exposed in three different ways:


    Make ten changes at the same time, not one change ten times. Multiple selections allow you to interactively change many lines at once, rename variables with ease, and manipulate files faster than ever.


    The Command Palette holds infrequently used functionality, like sorting, changing the syntax and changing the indentation settings. With just a few keystrokes, you can search for what you want, without ever having to navigate through the menus or remember obscure key bindings..


    Sublime Text has a powerful, Python API that allows plugins to augment built-in functionality.


    Key bindings, menus, snippets, macros, completions and more - just about everything in Sublime Text is customizable with simple JSON files. This system gives you flexibility as settings can be specified on a per-file type and per-project basis.


    Get the most out of your widescreen monitor with split editing support. Edit files side by side, or edit two locations in the one file. You can edit with as many rows and columns as you wish. Take advantage of multiple monitors by editing with multiple windows, and using multiple splits in each window.


    Projects in Sublime Text capture the full contents of the workspace, including modified and unsaved files. You can switch between projects in a manner similar to Goto Anything, and the switch is instant, with no save prompts - all your modifications will be restored next time the project is opened.
