When compared to applications like TeXShop or TeXmaker, TeXstudio certainly has more fans. Indeed this program contains all of the major features LaTeX users are looking for such as structure view, assistants for formulas, images and tables and many other useful features.
Many researchers have turned to TeXstudio as a free and open source alternative to other programs, most of them proprietary.
This program provides color syntax coding, an integrated PDF viewer, a tree view of document structure and can also auto-complete many of the standard commands LaTeX users may use. Another useful feature that this of course includes is a spell-checker and a thesaurus.
Though TeXstudio isn't necessarily an application built for beginners, it does include wizards and assistance from within the application.
If you want to try something new with many features users have been clamoring for (for quite a while), then TeXstudio is definitely a contender and it's a free and open-source project built by collaborators.
TeXstudio can open LaTeX documents, edit LaTeX documents and highlight syntax.TeXstudio features and highlights:
