need to edit my existing website in html
All those items I listed are HTML editors.  Two of them are WYSIWYG...ish.
It is unlikely that any of those are better than Dreamweaver.  Why do you want to change?

None of them.  They all have the same problem... they abstract the code and you either learn nothing about web development, or you gain a bunch of bad habits.

If you are going to do serious web development then you should be coding using a text editor so you actually have to learn how to code.  If you are not doing serious web development then just Google and pick one.

What are you coding in? PHP, .Net or just HTML
What Cd& says!

If you care about what you code, code manually. It will make a world of difference to your understanding of all things 'Web Design'. It seems daunting at first, but the major technologies you'll use are actually quite straight-forward.

You could do this in a simple text editor, but that's too much like hard work. There are several advanced editors out there that can help with things like CSS, Javascript, PHP & HTML (Notepad++ for example).

A step up from that is to go for a full IDE - an application that will offer you all sorts of cool tools for WebDev - Auto-indent / Syntax Checking / Color Coding / IntelliSense / Project Management... Personally, I use Aptana Studio. A lot of people use Eclipse.

Improve the Internet, one site at a time - hand code! You'll feel better for it ;)
