Notepad2 Bookmark EditionNotepad2 is a light-weight, free and open source Notepad-like text editor with syntax highlighting.
Notepad2 is probably the best Notepad replacement you can find. Ever since I discovered this great program it's been an essential part of my every-day computer toolkit, and it has greatly speeded up my workflow. But I felt that it lacked a few features, in particular a bookmark feature. Since it is open source I decided to make my own version of the program.
