Best Free HTML Editor for Linux

KompoZerKompoZer , one of the best free WYSIWYG editors is KompoZer, our top recommendation for newbies. It's designed for non-technical computer users who want to create an attractive web site without needing to know HTML.

NetBeans started life as a Java Editor but with recent releases it has developed into a powerful text editor for web scripting.

At first glance, NetBeans is a little intimidating. Most of the menu items can be ignored by ordinary mortals. Using it as an HTML/PHP editor is akin to using a steam hammer to crack a peanut. Nevertheless the code completion, code colouring and the professional look and feel make it an excellent choice. (Review)

Polo is potentially one of the best file managers yet, but it still has problems, from a 3 minute look at it there were two glaring bugs. First try to change font size and it dies immediately, secondly if you make it full screen, how to get it back to normal. I eagerly await the next version.
