    You can use Dreamweaver for Rails development with the Rubyweaver plugin, but I have no idea how well it works.

    I prefer Textmate myself (it's the same editor used in the Rails screencasts). I'm guessing you're on Windows so Textmate won't be available to you (it's Mac-only), but for something similar check out e text editor.

    If you know how to use emacs or Vim then I guess either would make powerful Rails editors. google for Rails/Ruby and vim for some integration/extensions details.

    I may sound like an old record, but I think EasyEclipse takes a lot of beating. Cross platform too. RadRails is closely related and appears to be where the active Eclipse Ruby extension work is happening.

    Komodo Edit 4.0 is amazing!

    Autocompletion works like a charm for conditional code blocks and it has a decent lookup for coding on the fly. I've been using it for a couple of months and am really pleased with it.

    Oh... And it's free too!

    I've been playing with adapta's Radrails version for a couple weeks. It's not bad. I downloaded Komodo too - but haven't gotten into it yet.

    I've been very happy with Context. Downloaded the Ruby highlighter and have no complaints.

    I had the full version of Komodo about 5 years ago and it was really, really, really slow so I stopped using it. I'm using the Free version now with a Toshiba Laptop (PIV 1.8Ghz) running Ubuntu 4.7 and other than a few seconds to fire up, it is quick and effective. Perfect for Rails work.

    Does the Komodo IDE offer support for subversion? I thought that I heard that there was no svn support in it, could be wrong though.

    I too use TextMate on Mac, but I've played around a little bit with a new text editor for Windows that was inspired by TextMate, and even supports TextMate bundles (to a point):

    InType, with the smart tagline "In Type We Trust".

    I've also used Aptana's release of RadRails a tiny bit.
