Quark has the special capability of editing entities in a compiled .bsp file, without the source .map.  Rather different functionality than GTKRadiant.

Not aware of any other editors with that capability actually.

There is still some interest in traditional netquake, and it still has a community, but most gamers dont find it interesting anymore in lieu of all the new games out since then I suppose.
>> I really use Quark as my map editing tool....I dont build maps really, but manipulate entities mostly that are in the maps such as the weapons, ammo, spawn locations, cameras etc. Quark does ok with this, but could be better, so thats why I wanted to try GTK and see if it manages the entities better, or contribute some ideas that maybe would make that feature better. If I happen to learn more about making maps while using it, then thats fine too
