World’s fastest text editor gets even better!
EmEditor is a smart editor from Emurasoft that can handle pretty much any sized file. 2GB? 20? 200? No problem. A billion lines? Sure. What about really long lines? Is 10 million columns enough, because EmEditor can handle that with ease. It’s not just for programmers, but programmers can certainly appreciate and use many of its features.
EmEditor is one of the few editors I know that has been built for both 32- and 64-bit modes. If you have a 64-bit operating system, why shouldn’t you be using a 64-bit editor? You can edit files larger than 4GB even on 32-bit Windows, but 64-bits makes the editor run even faster and keep more in memory before using temporary space.

I would highly recommend EmEditor for any intensive text-centric activity!
I’ve been using EmEditor for the last 3 years, mostly for ontology crafting.
I chose that editor after testing a lot of different solutions, and the two major reasons for that choice have been:
true UTF-8 encoding, and unlimited size of documents (with light speed loading).
All the other solutions I tested were falling short of providing one or the other.
Additionally, I came to appreciate the excellent plug-ins, the keen regex integration, the side by side comparison, etc.
EmEditor is a complex software with a ton of features and I’ve lost my way a couple of times but Emurasoft has been each time immediately responsive and helpful.
I would highly recommend EmEditor as a first choice for any intensive text-centric activity.
