Just curious as to what your IDE of choice is for PHP development and why?
You’ll see that I replied with the following.
Being nearly Mac-exclusive, I do most of my coding in TextMate, and any text manip in TextWrangler (it has superb grep/regex capabilities).
I don’t use an IDE, but if I was to use one, it’d be something like Coda or Espresso.
If I wanted to use a cross-platform, free IDE that isn’t half bad, but is based on Eclipse, I’d use Aptana for HTML+CSS+JS+PHP support. It’s nice because it has built in support for Firefox and Safari, (and IE when you’re on Windows).
