We use Eclipse at work. It is good to work with and can be "set" for specific languages with plugins.

 

For instance we use Java which is the default language for it and added Adobe Flex to it as that is primarily what we use. You just need to install the tools for it to be a PHP editor.

 

Of course there are some PHP IDEs out there, but many cost money.

 

There are some listed under my list from 2008

We use NetBeans at work. I've tried pretty much all of them out there and IMO Netbeans is the best. Especially if you can take the time to setup XDebug fully. Awesome De-bugging makes my life so much easier.

Shocking! No condescending, undertone with a dry apology. Just straight talk, am I in the right forum?

I have been using notepad++ for a few months now and its brilliant. Very light weight and fast. It has its own FTP client and file explorer. Syntax colouring and loads more plugins. Its ideal for making quick changes as well. Also try the Zen Coding plugin. This provides an HTML template code for quick HTML implimentation.

 

For example...

 

html>(head>title)>body>div#wrapper>div#header+div#left+div#content+div#footer

 

produces...

 

<html>
<head>
	<title></title>
</head>
<body>
	<div id="wrapper">
		<div id="header"></div>
		<div id="left"></div>
		<div id="content"></div>
		<div id="footer"></div>
	</div>
</body>
</html>

 

And

 

ul>li#list$*5

 

produces...

 

<ul>
<li id="list1"></li>
<li id="list2"></li>
<li id="list3"></li>
<li id="list4"></li>
<li id="list5"></li>
</ul>

 

Mint!
