Overall Opinion: FlahsDevelop is a must for any flash development team. Its light weight design makes it a contender for one of the best Action Script development tools in the industry. One of the best features about the software is that it is opensource, allowing users to customzie and tweak it as needed. The software is also highly customization in regards to plugins, as its opensource nature encourages the use of plugins to create a better user experience. FlashDevelop is an excellent choice for anyone who desires a fast compiling time with minimal code degradation. The lightweight nature of the software ensures that your code will never deteriorate while it is being run, and that the run time will be a fraction of what it would be using other tools. A main drawback to this code editor is that while it does support numerous plug ins, the plug in community is quite small. This is not a problem if you are willing to wait for plug ins to be developed, but if your project team needs a plugin developed and does not have the means to do it, you may be in for a long wait. Another common complaint with this software is that while the editor is highly customization, it is very difficult for users to fully understand how to customize their interface. The learning curve is high, and since the software is open source and free, there isn't a team dedicated to end user support. There are community forums for user support, and they are faster to answer questions than most, but users should still expect to have a long wait time to get answers for their problems.

Cons: Limited Plug In community Poor Update Manager Poor Customization Options
