Looking for good web designing software

+2 Joseph Mancuso · November 1, 2014
I've been using Notepad++ for a while now...a long while.... but I want to upgrade to something real good. I've upgraded my desktop computer a few days ago, added two monitors, a video card, a new PSU and now its time to upgrade some software. 

What I need in the software:

  • I need something that will allow me to use my two monitors, I.E: code in one monitor and view the website in the second one. 

  • I would also like the software to be self/live updating. So any changes I make in the code can self update and I will be able to view real-time what I am doing without having to constantly refresh.

  • I also need an FTP plugin so I am obviously able to work on websites that are on my hosting account.

These are the three main priorities that I can think of so far. Is there anything like this? I especially would like the second requirement.

Also, what do you guys use to code and why?

Brackets is pretty nice...

If you can afford it DreamWeaver is really awesome once you learn.
