    I love it because it is open-source, platform agnostic, very customizable, good looking and pleasant to use.

    I use jEdit daily and have done so for years. It collects a number of features together under a single application and has a strong base editor. The features I use have changed over the years, but that's just a testament to its utility :)

    Highly customizable. If you know Java, you can write your own macros and plugins.
