ConTEXT is an advanced programmers' editor originally written by Eden Kirin over a decade ago and released as freeware. The editor quickly became popular as it was the arguably most powerful freeware editor for the Windows platform. ConTEXT is a powerful text editor that can lend a hand to developers, as it provides syntax highlighting for Visual Basic, Java, PHP, Python and many others.
Eden's work and interests changed and he neglected updating the program for several years. In 2008, recognizing he no longer had time for ConTEXT, Eden sold ConTEXT to its current owner who has decided to open source the still widely popular editor. The interface of the application is clean and comes with tab support, which is a great feature for those who want to juggle with multiple documents at the same time. The ConTEXT community plans on improving and modernizing ConTEXT to better compete with today's best freeware programmers' editors.
As a free tool that comes with a boatload of editing features, ConTEXT is well worth checking out by anyone who regularly works with text files, especially those who work with code and markup files.
