I am a big fan of IDEs and code editors, especially for web design and web development so these days I was contacted by Codelobster team to review their IDE and write some article about it.

For valuable work on creation of sites you need a good comfortable editor necessarily. There are many requiring paid products for this purpose, but there is free of charge very functional and at the same time very simple in the use editor - Codelobster PHP Edition.

Some important possibilities and advantages of this IDE/code editor:

• Powerful autocompletion for HTML, PHP, CSS and Javascript, including HTML5 and CSS3. For PHP the structure of project is fully recognized, and the complete list of methods falls out in the proper places.
