    I use brackets for the web designing. It is easy but takes time. Is there any best alternative?

    I personally like Brackets, but I've also used Komodo Edit, and Visual Studio, I can't say which is "Best" as each one has functions that are good or bad based on your need and comfort level.

    First I'd ask what kind of website are you wanting to design?
    There are tons of IDE's on the web, you can simply use notepad if you want.

    Your question is like asking what's the best car to drive, or the best movie to watch.

    You should provide more info if you are seriously asking the question.

    I'll recommend openElement as a visual editor for full websites.

    Adobe Dream Weaver or Wordpress are the best softwares for designing websites...

    Wordpress is software that runs a website brackets is a text editor that is used to write add-ons or websites from ground up. Dream weaver comes closer to brackets but is still different.

    Dreamweaver still exists, it's up for purchase from Adobe too. It's actively developed and maintained. I think it's part of creative cloud for web developer app. suite.

    For Dreamweaver alone you pay 20,99 dollars a month or 251,88 dollars a year. So its expensive and there programs out there that can do the same, text editors can be free.

    I had access to DW for a long time but managed to teach myself to code using Notepad. Kept my code much cleaner. But it's been a decade since I did any coding and my skill level is probably back at beginner.

    Now that there is Visual Studio Code. I don't think most of the modern developers make use of the Dreamweaver as much as they used to in past. There are still those people who design static websites they may go for HTML CoffeeCUP editor suite which is lot cheaper.

    As suggested above, openElements is a really good alrernative than can handle static and datavase-driven sites. It's built on top of chromium/electron, which appears to be a trending pattern among desktop software lately.
