First The IDE

There are many IDE that we can use to design or code website from scrap. If you don’t know what an IDE is, I will tell you what it is. So an IDE is an acronym of Integrated Development Environment. an IDE is a software application that provides comprehensive facilities to computer programmers for software development. An IDE normally consists of a source code editor, build automation tools and a debugger. Most modern IDEs offer Intelligent code completion features. *http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Integrated_development_environment

Some IDEs contain a compiler, interpreter, or both, such as Net Beans and Eclipse; others do not, such as SharpDevelop and Lazarus. The boundary between an integrated development environment and other parts of the broader software development environment is not well-defined. Sometimes a version control system and various tools are integrated to simplify the construction of a GUI. Many modern IDEs also have a class browser, an object browser, and a class hierarchy diagram, for use in object-oriented software development. *http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Integrated_development_environment

So short to say, it is a software for programmers developing their software! 🙂
