    One i’m using right now is phpStorm – it’s kinda cool, fun to use, extensive and blows by IDE’s like NetBeans as well (for the php functionality that is).

    Good list though!

    Guys, Eclipse and phpStorm (which is Java-based and apparently a variant of Eclipse) are NOT what anyone would call “lightweight” PHP editors!

    phpStorm’s Web site made a big deal about PHPUnit support, which is the one and only real weak spot I’ve encountered in Komodo IDE (what I’m using now). Half an hour of poking at it convinced me that it really is Eclipse, with all the performance and usability constraints that implies.

    To the next guy who stumbles on this page: You Have Been Warned.

    bos ada php editor plus bisa liat efek hasilnya nggak!!!
    kan kalo javascript mah ada tuh dengan jQuery? kalo buat php ada nggak yah???

    speaking of lightweight.. i’ve been using Arisesoft Winsyntax 2.0, it’s less than 400kb..

    if you’ve got lower than that.. i’d switch.. :P
