I was looking for a nice plugin for displaying code snippet in my wordpress blog. I found a great list of such plugins through this http://blog.templatemonster.com/2011/04/15/wordpress-plugins-code-snippets-displaying/
However out of the fifteen plugins listed out there, I liked only 3 of them
Google Syntax Highlighter
Syntax Highlighter Evolved
The first one depends on the GeSHI highlight system and does the syntax highlighting at the server side. The later two does it on the client side by Alex Gorbatchev’s Syntax Highlighting code.
All the three supports many number of programming languages
Alex Gorbatchev’s Syntax Highlighting code
I choose the first one because it’s on the server side. Although it may affect server performance with better caching plugins like Quick Cache you can always have a performance gain over others.
Hence my choice is to go for Developer Formatter
