Komodo Edit is the free version of the award-winning product from ActiveState, Komodo IDE.
I tried Komodo IDE some years ago under Linux, in 2006 to be more accurate. I liked it, it was very complete, with very good features. It was a very good alternative to develop open source web projects. I remember that I left it out because my PC was a little limited in resources to run the program. Besides...commercial software under Linux? Hmmm, a little weird thing.
Years after, I heard that ActiveState released a freeware version of Komodo IDE, under the name 'Komodo Edit'. So I decided to try it out.
The user interface is not the big thing, but it's clean and well organized. The program is highly configurable and extensible.
One of the things I liked more is the availability in Windows, Linux and Mac. And there seems to be a big community supporting it. There is even a project to create an open source version: Open Komodo. It's very promising...don't forget to check it out too!

- A big load if you just need to quickly edit one or two files
