Adobe Brackets Brackets represents a startling break from traditional Web development. Created by Adobe, Brackets brings context-sensitive HTML/CSS/JavaScript coding into the browser, combining inline editing with live previews within a single browser window -- no more bouncing back and forth between files or juggling code with Firebug.

Put your cursor on an HTML tag, hit Ctrl-E, and all the relevant CSS rules become editable within the page. As you make your changes, you can view the results in real time.
