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. Features include integrated file management (upload to and edit files on a web server), tabbed editing (allowing work on multiple pages), and support for forms, tables and templates. (Review)

 

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)
