I'm working on a project that needs a WYSIWYG editor, but I haven't had to integrate one in a while, so I'm not familiar with the latest and greatest ones. I've used both tinyMCE and nicEdit in the past and I'd prefer not to use tinyMCE for this project because of its large overhead.
I don't need it to be overly complex, but I need the ability to change the available buttons on a per-implementation basis, and good compatibility with jQuery and AJAX is a huge plus. Obviously, good clean HTML support is a necessity.
So what WYSIWYG editors have you found lately? What ones would you recommend?

I have used almost all of them and in my opinion, ckeditor (which evolved from fckeditor) is probably the best free one and integrates well with jQuery. others i like include cuteEditor (not free) and a relative newcomer called elrte

It uses jQuery and jQuery UI, and is very easy to set up. – Phil Hale Jul 15 '11 at 14:52 2 ckeditor seems amazing, wonder why it isn't more famous as wysihtml5 and TinyMCE... – Eran Medan Sep 4 '12 at 22:25 Just to add another one here - Redactor. Disappointingly it's not free, however looks to be a fairly competent editor.: – Rick Nov 27 '12 at 9:45 | show more comments
We use tinyMCE and it works well with jQuery.

If you have site.com, and you load the editor from static.site.com, you'll have problems, even when setting document.domain. – K. Norbert Jul 7 '10 at 6:15 Yes @K.Norbert, I've faced the same!! how to overcome that problem; or any better alternative? buddy!! plz guide through! – Vikrant Aug 20 '15 at 4:44
I've used JWYSIWYG for a couple projects where I needed something really light-weight that is an actual plugin. What features do you need?

Another worth adding to the list is the Closure Library Editor from Google. This is the editor the use in Gmail, Google Sites and Google Groups. It is also very customizable.

I've tried several editors, but the most customizable and best use I think the redactor.
It's not free, but you can save a lot of time with it.
Fast, small, looks great.

Wysihtml5 is nice, and seems very popular
