    I agree with both Marketing Jhonny and cyberroot.

    phpDesigner is a nice editor with PHP specific features and is fairly inexpensive. The code completion features are nice and I like using it for major projects.

    However, I find myself using Notepad++ most of the time when I'm just editing scripts or working on a short bit of code. Notepad++ recognizes PHP and dozens of other languages - and it's free.

    I use Ultraedit 32. Probably dont need a lot of the features it has as its packed with them, but some very helpful stuff including doc compare, find in files, color coding for all major languages, built in FTP for working remotely, etc.

    Anyone use Textpad? That's what I've been using for the last 5 years and I couldn't imagine using anything else... It's light weight and works great with internet languages like HTML, PHP, etc.

    +1 for PHP Designer, felt in love with it, it's autocomplete feature is awesome. Second best is Notepad++ for editing mostly anything.

    Notepad++, what I like best about this is the compare feature, not sure if this is in other editors as well, but it's pretty useful when i take a new and old pieces of code and look at whats different

    I asked this same question not long ago.

    the most popular answers were
    notepad++ and dreamweaver


    I am going to use dreamweaver due to it being able to show you in several browsers how your page will look.


    but there are a ton of them... aptana studio is a good one too.
