    True but I can code faster now using nothing but DW code view than I could using a full IDE. It is horses for courses and also depending on the knowledge possessed by the person doing the programming.

    Personally I do like DW if only for the hint's it gives when you start to type a function eg if you type mail( it gives the tooltip for what the parameters are and the order they should come in - useful if you can't remember every function and syntax.

    I use Textpad, nice syntax highlighting for practically any language and the workspace feature makes it ideal for working on huge systems. One of only a few items of software that's worth paying for.

    Never been a fan of IDEs in any language as they are too over-the-top or clunky.

    Zend studio all the way.

    It has a nice profile that tells how much times each functions takes.

    Very handy to compare the speed of script.

    If only I could find a way to find out the overhead of scripts.

    I use DMX 2004 - but I'm using it for the server behaviours and easy of finding and changing code - other than that it's kind of useless, except for making DB connections

    phpeclipse + amateras (html / CSS for eclipse) + jsEclipse (javascript), I like this the best. I'm currently on PC, I would try textmate (for mac only) otherwise.

    I'm suprised that Eclipse was not on the list and so few use it. I understand that Zend will be moving their development tools to Eclipse (but still supporting Zend Studio for a while).

    Well, I've found out that I need the Professional version of Zend IDE ($300 or so) instead of the $99 one because I use a development server. The trial is still free though

    The sales rep was a nifty upseller.

    I use eclipse with the php plugin. In my opinion it is the best I have tried. Although I haven't used Zend studio.
    Thanks Eric.

    I use Zend Studio and have for a year. I have tried Crimson Editor, tsWebEditor and they didn't work out. I hate WYSIWYG editors. I LOVE it!

    The one I use and only see mentioned here once is Crimson Editor. I like it for it's multi colored programming style and marking the begining and end of things like [] and {}. It will also fit on a single floppy disk if you need it portable.

    The other thing I like is that it has different color syntax's for different programming languages. and scripts like ASP, HTML, PHP, Basic, C++, Java, Pascal, Perl and others.

    It also has tabs at the top that I can switch between one script and another which I find myself doing quite often.

    I know many people prefer notepad for those types of things, but for me it makes it hard to read. The way it lays everything out, for me it's easier to read.

    For a freeware program, it's pretty darned good. If you'd be interested in it too, you can find it at crimsoneditor.com.

    Just giving an opinion.

    Non of the above for me!

    I use Eclipse.

    Of all of the various editors I've tried, Eclipse really does eclipse all others.

    The only two others that come close are Zend Studio and skEdit.

    I've spent good money on BBEdit and I've been massively disappointed...

    When im working mainly on PHP files I use zend, when I work with a number of different languages for example PHP, HTML and CSS I like to use PHP designer because it is really easy to switch between the different languages. Also its so much quicker to load up php designer than zend, I only use zend when I'm feeling lazy.

    I'd never heard of Eclipse, until I posted this poll, so sorry to all, who are wondering why its not in the poll , I've been giving PHP Designer 2005 a run for its money and seems to be a very good IDE and like Opserty said
    when I work with a number of different languages for example PHP, HTML and CSS I like to use PHP designer because it is really easy to switch between the different languages
    which is a good plus. Has any one updated to PHP Designer 2006, and if so, any problems?.

    I also bought a good book today called Foundation PHP for Dreamweaver 8 by David Powers, which at having had a quick skim through gives a good run down on how to use Dreamweaver's built in PHP support. Hoping it will come in handy and justify its cost

    I occasionally use vi if I'm in a hurry. Unfortunately not a lot of web hosting services offer shell any more.
