Select Browser in the View menu to open the active file in a web browser. If the file is modified, EditPad will save it first.

If this feature does not work, either EditPad is unable to detect your computer’s default web browser, or you’ve incorrectly configured the browser setting in the System Preferences.

If the file you’re editing was opened via FTP then EditPad Pro uses the “translate FTP folders into HTTP URLs” setting from the FTP connection dialog to determine the URL that represents the file on your server. This URL is then passed to your browser.

If you want to use multiple browsers you can add them to the Tools menu in EditPad Pro. If you’re using another application to upload your file to a server, or if you have the server software running on your own PC, then you can add a tool with an URL as its command line.
