On a similar note, when is Macromedia going to make a Linux-compatible version of Dreamweaver? Frankly, I think they're in bed with Microsoft, but they may be tempted to take the leap if Linux continues to gain popularity. I see frequent questions about Dreamweaver and Linux on various forums.
it runs on mac and mac is a unix flavor now... gettin there!
Well, the closest tool you can find for PHP is qstudio, it aims to allow you develop web applications like you were developing windows applications (sort of), check out the screen casts videos to get an idea on how will work (it looks like it's not released yet).
This is a portable app. version of Dreamweaver CS3 and im not sure what that means ohter than not as many files are installed. I'm not sure if this is meant to be free to us or not. I was told it was free to use. I keep finding this random copy of dreamweaver posted on sites.
Because Front Page was mentioned I think you are in windows. If so you can use the free version of Visual Studio 2010 from MS. It does both Visual and Code and split windows like Dream Weaver but again it is not a Dream Weaver replacement but it is free. Works only in windows but I output can be for anything as long as you choose the proper output.
As an editor I like Notepad++ from source forge and has a lot of extra plug-ins written.
