Hi, Has anyone tried the text editing software BRACKETS before? If so what do you think of it? I would just like to know if I should get it or just look for a paid one.

Here's a good breakdown between 4 popular text editors

Atom vs Brackets vs Light Table vs Sublime Text

All are free. Sublime Text is "WinRar Free" in that the free version is an unlimited trial of the full version, you just get occasional pop-ups urging you to pay and it says (UNREGISTERED) in the title bar.

Brackets is definitely really good for web design; I use it
