Caderno Is a Free Notepad Replacement With Tabs

To me, Notepad is an  indispensable  piece of software, however, there are many times when I wish Notepad had a little more features. If you are looking for a text editor that is not as heavy-duty as MS Word or Notepad ++ but does a little more than Windows Notepad, Caderno is a pretty good choice.

In addition to all the basic features of Notepad, Caderno optimizes your editing by letting you work in tabs, display line numbers and even does syntax high-lighting for many programming languages including INI, XML, HTML, CSS, JavaScript, PHP and Java.

Along with built-in crash recovery, unicode support and code and parameter completion for PHP functions, Caderno also lets you manage your work in sessions. The Firefox style find/replace feature also comes in pretty handy when you are editing your text files. The tool works with all Windows OS including XP, Vista and 7, and also has a portable and a U3 version for USB drives.

Here is a quick summary of features that Caderno offers:

  • Tabs
  • Crash recovery
  • Session management
  • Syntax highlighting
  • Unicode support
  • Line numbers
  • Portable versions
  • Supports all Windows OS.

It is a great tool to create and edit simple text documents or code and the main reason why it is so useful is the option to use it as simply as Notepad or as extensively as Notepad ++ depending on your requirements.
