jEdit - Java-based programming text editor Pick of the Week

7 of 10
[0 to 10 lights; 10 = perfect!]
jEdit is a multi-programming-language (70 of them!) text editor written in Java. It features a highly customizable environment, third-party extensions to add functionality (over 60 now available), and its own macro language.

I really like jEdit's tabbed window feature for managing all open files in one main window, and the syntax highlighting on php pages is very nice (and fully customizable, of course). I used jEdit extensively while customizing the PHP code for and the macosxhints forum site.

Why only 7 out of 10 on the scorboard? jEdit is a Java application, which leads to a number of interface issues - the look is somewhat different, the scroll wheel doesn't work on the mouse, etc. But the editor itself is powerful and easy to use, so I don't mind the interface glitches all that much.
