Highly customisable text editors that can be used for an array of text based tasks.
Platform: Windows 8 compatible, Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP
AkelPad can be used to create and edit all manner of text based files, and is espescially suited to coding and HTML work.
The app ships with a fairly basic basic interface that will suit many but for those looking to add to this limited interface there are a number of plugins availible.
A wealth of additional plugins can be accessed through the program's menus, and you can add everything from standard features such as a spell checker to advanced search and other useful formatting options.
The great thing about the app is that you can choose exactly which options are enabled and remove features you wont need.
