Kate is a multi document editor, based on a rewritten version of the kwrite editing widget of KDE, offering all the features of that plus a bunch of its own. Kate has been been moved to the kdebase package, and is a builtin part of your favorite desktop since release 2.2.
Being a native KDE application, Kate is of course born with networking transparency, as well as it integrates with the outstanding features of KDE.
Choose it for viewing HTML sources from konqueror, editing configuration files, writing new applications or any other text editing task. You still needs just one running instance of Kate.
