Arachnophilia is a source code editor written in Java by Paul Lutus. It is the successor to another HTML editor, WebThing. The name Arachnophilia comes from the term meaning "love of spiders", a metaphor for the task of building on the World Wide Web.
Once written as a Windows application, the program was rewritten by Lutus in Java as part of his boycott against Microsoft and its product activation features for Windows XP. Arachnophilia requires the Java 2 runtime environment, release 1.5 or later.
