Now please add mouse-hover hint box, dropdown list for auto completion and I am sold

If only TextWrangler had auto-completion and auto-pairing of brackets and quotes.

Have you looked at Sublime Text 2?


I switched about a year ago and I am very pleased.

EDIT: This shows it off better: http://www.sublimetext.com/

Elaborate on the hover hint box, please


suppose this line:

    result = someFunction(param1, param2='ok')
mouse over to `someFunction`, a small box shows brief description of function, what it does, how many parameters are required, what does optional parameters do.

It's basically a richer version of <span title="text" alt="text"</span>
