JS Editor

Please suggest a (preferably free) js editor.
I need at least:
1) Code-beautify/indent feature
2) Robust search/replace

Win32 - Ultra-Edit
. . Excellent program with very good search replace and syntax
highlighting.
. . Very customizable

x-platform - Eclipse with JS plugin
. . Defacto Java standard with competent plugin
. . May be overkill though.

Linux 1 - Kate
. . Very well written app.
. . Decent syntax highlighting

Linux - kdevelop
. . Fully featured IDE / editor

Well, under Linux (and it would probably work under windows as well), I
use emacs with js-mode for coding javascript _in JS files_. There is a
big advantage in doing so, and here's why:

Yes, you can connect to a running firefox w/ your emacs, and do
on-the-fly 'introspection' and definition of code into the FF
context.
(This has been coded by the almighty Helmut Eller, who is already very
famous in the Common Lisp community for SLIME
(http://common-lisp.net/project/slime/))

A major drawback when using emacs is that it kinda sucks at editing
HTML files and embedded JS code.

For its flexibility and short innovation cycle compared to others, I think
about the Eclipse Platform SDK 3.1 (and above) [1] as a "must have" for any
serious software developer, no matter the programming language. As for the
JS plugin to be used for it, I recommend that of the MyEclipse Enterprise
Workbench 4.0 (and above) [2].
