Another useful feature is effortless column selection: If you want to add the same bit of text along multiple lines (for example, several closing parentheses marks in following lines), you can simply select a column of text and type your text. Multiple insertions points will appear, and you will see your text entered into several spots all at once.
Sublime Text 2 also has a system of plugins, the most important of which is called Package Control. This plugin lets you easily search for other plugins from within Sublime Text, and download and install them right from the editor. When I needed to add a word count to the status bar, it took me less than a minute to use Package Control and find a plugin that did exactly what I needed. Its search interface uses the same fuzzy string matching common throughout Sublime Text, and is just as quick to use.
Note: The Download button on the Product Information page takes you to the vendor's site, where you can download the latest version of the software.
