  3. 3
    Click "Health Report" in the dropdown menu that appears
    .
    This will open a pop-up window. Brackets, as we can see from the text here, sometimes sends anonymous statistics about how the application is used. This information is sent to Adobe. Some people do not like this. We can opt out of this.

    Find the box next to the words, "Share anonymous information on how I use Brackets"
    .
    Brackets is an open source application on GitHub. We can use the Brackets editor itself to edit the application. If we can edit in Java and HTML and CSS, we can edit the application itself and how it even functions. Personally, we like to give this information. We can see the information in the white box. None of it says anything about us personally. We're fine sharing it.

    Note that the box has no checkmark in it
    .
    The same information that would be shared is listed below, but it is no longer being sent. We like to support the developers, so we are going to click the box to put the checkmark back in it. The alternative to Brackets that we would use is a much more expensive application, Dreamweaver.
