Juffed is a powerful, yet a simple Text editor written in Qt that supports both MS Windows and GNU/Linux platforms. The Windows version comes in an archive format (‘zipped’) thus it can easily be used as a portable application if you like too.
It’s actually more than just a text editor because it comes with built in support of some programming languages and common code recognition (syntax highlighting) as well.
Then again not an extremely advanced, programmer oriented editor but if you’re looking for a fully featured text editor that’s somewhat better than the ones that MS Windows by default, then Juffed does deserve a try nonetheless :).

*. Find and replace.
*. Go to line.
*. Comes with few plug-ins that adds features such as: Showing recently opened file to the left, a simple file manager that lets us browse for files on the HDD with ease).
