We are often asked to name our favorite testing tools. At uTest, we are testing tool-agnostic. We leave it up to our global community of software testers to pick the best testing tools for their projects.
Over in our Tool Reviews section, our community members have the ability to rate and review the tools they know and love, and that make their lives easier. Here are the top five testing tools in our Tool Reviews library right now.
Notepad++ is at the top of the most frequently rated list in our Tool Reviews library. This free text editor and Notepad replacement that supports several languages. It runs in the MS Windows environment. Notepad++ is written in C++ and uses pure Win32 API and STL which ensures a higher execution speed and smaller program size.
Plugins extend the capability of this program, which is also a popular testing tool for exploratory testing. As one reviewer notes, “Notepad++ does everything I need, from a text editor, including syntax highlighting for many languages, easy indent fixing, line number, text manipulations, search and replace, etc. I particularly like the way you can switch between text encoding as well.”
