Just to let you all know

if you're content with a very basic editor, PSPad is very nice. It's lite and customizable with scripts, it also has good syntax highlighting.

Very good but not free: phpEd

My favorite editor is without a doubt Eclipse PDT.

@zanus: There's a plugin called Regex Util. Haven't tried it myself, but i'll install it now and I'll come back with a "report" when I've tried it out

It is a eclipse plugin to help create regular expressions (regex). The goal is to make it as easy and as fast as possible to create regex. Main features: full highlighting of regular expression syntax including bracket matching and error detecting; tooltips will be shown when the mouse is over a part of the regex; generation of string literals based on the regexp, e.g. "(x)" becomes "(x)"; Search for regular expression and highlight matches.; LiveEval evaluates your regular expression while you are typing.

From what I've experienced so far it works pretty well... when i hold the mouse over the pattern it displays information about that part and so on.. Thanks for making me look up this plugin. I have little to no knowledge about regex, so this will be really usefull for me!

also what i like is the direct access to the function list inside Eclipse.. you can highlight a function in your document and press Shift+F2 and it'll open the online manual page for that function.. as well as a full listview of all functions

like several people here including me has said already... Eclipse PDT is a great editor

My vote goes for Notepad Plus Plus (Notepad++).
It`s free, not huge in size, have a lot of languages aviable like php,html etc etc.  :)
Much more functions i haven`t try :D

Learning is better than doing nothing.

Interesting choice.. Don't know why it should cost like so though.

VIM + PHP syntax hilighting ftw.

You can integrate that with PHP Unix man pages as well to get the full documentation.

pear channel-discover doc.php.net
pear install doc.php.net/pman

Now you should be able to access PHP documentation like pman strpos. Then it's just a matter of setting keywordprg to pman for PHP files in vim.

I use NuSphere PhpEd and WampServer.

WampServer can be setup in less than 5 minutes, and PhpEd's debugging module is installed effortlessly via the program's Project Wizard.

Try to use the dreamweaver killer .... http://www.aptana.com  :)

  True aptana has a lot of good features but it's big (over 150 megs compressed download - but that includes video tutorials) but I found it made a lot of things complicated that didn't need to be. Where in most editors you just 'create a new file' or 'create a new project' you couldn't just create a new file during the months that I was trying aptana. You had to create a stupid container for the file first before you could create a new file.  The update features and plugins I tried never worked. That said it's been about a year since I last tried aptana so it might be worth another go. It is not for those who want something 'light' though :)

Quanta Plus is always a good fairly light weight editor.
Lately I've been using VIM more though. For small scripts and projects I find something nice and lightweight is always a great way to go.

I wish there were some good RAD tools for PHP for the bigger projects. I've tried code-igniter and it definitely wasn't for me and I'm not much of a framework fan.

I use PhpED for the serious stuff.  I bit the bullet and paid money for it after struggling to get anything but error messages out of Eclipse.

For simple stuff, HTML, CSS and the odd bit of PHP in an HTML file I use Crimson Editor (http://www.crimsoneditor.com).  Been using it for years and went back to it after trying Notepad++ for a while.

Agreed, I have used Notepad++ for the last couple years or so. Netbeans was slow to load and while using it. Prefer highlighted syntax which is also why I don't use Notepad. Having said that, Notepad 2 is similar to Notepad++ but the latter is by far superior.
