UltraEdit vs. UEStudio

UltraEdit and UEStudio both include powerful features such as syntax highlighting, code folding, integrated scripting and macro support, and more. However, there are some key differences between UltraEdit and UEStudio such as version control, language intelligence, and integrated development tools. The chart below outlines these and other differences.

UEStudio has all the features of UltraEdit plus the power of an IDE.
