A programmer's text editor written in Jaya with extensible plugin architecture and a huge array of features
Pros & Cons:
If you are mainly concerned about text editing power and not concerned about startup time, try jEdit, a programmer's text editor which provides a huge array of features, especially if the users include the plugin library.
It has all basic features like tabs and syntax highlighting for over 130 languages. Its advanced features include a diff utility, an FTP browser, a powerful macro language, block select, and more.
A bit of a heavyweight, yes, but you can't beat the power. Like gedit, this program is cross platforms and runs on Linux, Windows and Mac.
