Programs for web development?
Every time I approach development of any kind, I always lose a lot of time to figure out what program I should start with.
As for web development, I usually go with Brackets while working on static web pages and a combination of Notepad++ and Google Dev Tools for dynamic pages. However, these settings don't always satisfy me, because the work flow is not as smooth as I'd like it to be (especially with the latter, it feels... clunky).
What do you use for web development? If you're also a web apps developer, what do you use for that? (I have never approached web apps, but hey, might as well ask while I'm at it)

Well I'm a programmer and I have tried just about everything. I keep going back to Notepad++ though. Maybe I'm just set in my ways.

Currently, I'm working with Notepad+ in Windows and Atom in Linux, when I do PHP. And when I'm on ASP.NET, I use Visual Studio 2015.
But I think nothing is great than Atom, which is also available on Windows.

I'm using brackets/Atom with a lot of plugins, and some automatization tools like gulp

You must try PHPStorms and WebStorms at least once.It is the best among all.

Atom with plugins for me, though it's kind of buggy. Crashes or starts to act weird after a few hours for me each time. Free though.

Thanks to everyone who suggested Atom! I seriously can't believe I've found out about it just now. I gave it a look now, and it seems amazing. The plugin support is what really kills it, and being compatible with multiple platforms is always a plus. I'll definitely give it a shot.
Thanks to everyone again!

I'm also using Atom with a few packages: color-picker, pigments, project-manager and minimap to improve productivity. The only problem I have with Atom is that it takes some time to start up on Windows.

I use Goldfish on Linux and Sublime Text on Mac, they're like halfways between an IDE and a simple text processor.

I Use Atom over Brackets/WebStorm/VisualStudio 2015. Depends on what I am working at the moment. I used to develop in good old DreamWeaver and I am still using it sometimes...

I have great experience with DW, I have written lots of code from the ground up and I don't have that problem, its not imposing anything on me .
Visual Studio 2015 is great but its too heavy when it comes to simple web apps/pages.
I use ATOM for only HTML5/CSS3/JS
I Use WebStorm when it comes to React/SCSS and sometimes for simple HTML5/CSS3, depends. It has great built-in console and other tools where it makes the workflow better.

I've tried Visual Studio as well, but that was the 2016 edition, and even that one was a little too hard on my computer. It handles Brackets, Atom, Notepad++ and the likes much better.
I've never heard about WebStorm, though. What can you do with that console? What makes it better for SCSS, exactly?

Lets say I need bootstrap, I install bootstrap through console in my project directory by executing just one line, import links and that's about it, and that works for everything. Its much better/faster workflow when you sum things up.

I use Atom and Sublime text. It is very easy to navigate through your file directory. I started using notepad++ but it gets crowded and it is really hard to navigate. I also used netbeans but it has a high overhead that sometimes slows down my laptop. I think Atom is better visually and easier to use but Sublime is faster.
