Adobe introduces Brackets, “A free, open-source code editor for the Web”

Think Adobe’s just about Dreamweaver & Flash?

The new Brackets app offers inline editors & tight browser integration:

Today we’ve all gotten used to doing the save-reload-copy-paste dance… Brackets opens a live connection to your local browser and brings some of those in-browser tools back into the editor where it makes sense. When Live File Preview is enabled your browser shows real-time changes to CSS classes and properties as you type. Because the code lives in your editor but runs in your browser there is no need to save-reload-copy-paste. w00t!

Brackets is built in JavaScript, HTML and CSS, meaning that “if you use Brackets, you have the skills necessary to customize, extend and contribute to it.” Check out their introductory blog post, and see some of the features in action:
