Have you tried out Adobe's new open-source text editor for web designers?

Adobe released a free open-source text editor for HTML, CSS and JavaScript called Brackets to the public earlier this month. The open-source editor from Adobe is also made from the very same coding languages it enables one to edit, that is: HTML, CSS and JavaScript.

Brackets is available for Windows, Mac and Linux and is aimed at web designers and developers with focused features like Live Preview to easily jump between browser view and source code for quick edits, inline editors to work on specific bits of code without pop-ups or additional tabs, and preprocessor support baked in. Users can also download and use extensions to add functionality to aid their workflow, such as Git integration and JSHint support.

The release of Brackets also includes a preview of Extract for Brackets, which is an extension that automatically pulls design information from a PSD such as colors, fonts, gradients, images and more and then it generates clean CSS. This is a feature that most web developers will surely love as it will lighten their workload.

If you are a web designer or developer looking to try out Brackets, then head over to this link and download it.
