Quote from: Giveawayoftheday
GridinSoft Notepad

Text editor is considered to be the basic instrument for every software developer. Convenient location of panels, menu, and vast tools for working with text, as well as the possibilities of flexible integration with compilers - everything is of great importance.

The balance of possibilities, easiness of perception and usability are usually given considerable prominence to. Do you really need an editor with 100 menu entries and which takes 2 minutes to loading? The answer is evident - no! That is why GridinSoft has developed a completely unique editor: you can appreciate its convenience and load performance from the very first minutes of working with it. Template patterns, folding, integration with SVN, the possibilities of flexible functionality extension at the expense of the script language based on popular JavaScript! The list of features is not exhaustive - it will take much time to enlist, but in the process of working with GridinSoft Notepad you will open up more and more ways of enhancing your productive capacity! What about a built-in syntactic calculator of expressions, spelling check, or a web-analyzer which can check compliance of your code to a variety of standards of the HTML syntax?

We believe that our editor is worth trying out! Being a team of software developers, we use the GridinSoft Notepad on a permanent basis ourselves. That is why we can easily recommend it to you as well!

Looks interesting (not that I need another text editor).

If you do decide to install it check your c:\Documents and Settings\<user>\Local settings\Temp folder for the installer (extracted from GAotD's packaged installer) so you can reinstall later if you need to (just check file creation times!).

i had installed this from an earlier giveaway (jan.2007, to be precise) but didn't use it that much compared to the editors that i already had. text editors are so habit-forming. ;)

It's always dangerous to get into discussions about: sex, politics, religion, or text editors...

I also got GS's Notepad from an earlier giveaway. It's a nice editor as far as it goes. The web validation feature is an interesting addition.

But inertia always wins in the end. I continue to use  my "old faithful" Notepad++ (now at version 5).
