    GEdit or UltraEdit 32, depending on which box I'm on.

    Depends on what OS I am using.

    Mac ->BBEdit
    PC -> EditPlus

    I do most of my scripting on Mac - don't ask why, I've got no idea except that I love BBEdit.

    I use Crimson Editor and it's great. It's got PHP syntax highlighting and all of the features that I want, and it's small and quick.

    Are there any editors out there that are like Notepad, but also have syntax colouring and line numbers... no complex options. I want one that's quick and easy, especially quick to load! Otherwise, for the mean time it's Notepad for me! I downloaded a Zend Studio trial but it's too slow to load on my 433 Celeron!

    Although just got DW MX, tried to use it and don't like it as much as Editplus though.

    PHPedit...uummm...
    maybe i'll give that a whirl.

    I agree, editplus is fast, even on my 450Mhz Celeron with Windows 95..

    I reccomend it to everybody.

    Crimson Editor is fast as well, and it has the features you want. You have to download an extra small file to get PHP syntax highlighting to work, but it's perfect once it's setup. It loads up nearly instantly on my home machine which is a 466 mhz celeron.

    I like Nedit, download an extra file for PHP4 syntax highlighting and you're ready to go.

    I have tried a few and just downloaded the latest version of many of those mentioned.

    I always like UltraEdit it has been around for a long time, and when it first came out it was THE business
    But the main feature I love about it is the "find in files" so cool when your customer changes their business name and you need to change a load of files (yeah I know SSI, PHP, CMS etc etc but some sites are still HTML) or they are untill we get our hands on them

    Anyway, what I was looking for in downloading all these today is decent syntax highlighting. Really, I just want something the same as Sitepoint has here. There feature is very nice, if I had the time I would make a little add-on for HTML kit I could even use the same colors so it was familar when I came here. However, don't have the time.

    So out of the box coloring? Has to be Crimson Editor:
    http://www.crimsoneditor.com/
    recommended by Coomer. It has a grey background on PHP, white background on HTML and it highlights the whole line you select in light yellow. Somebody should tell them that Red and purple really don't go together but apart from that, its wicked. Oh Dude you can change the colors, so I changed the purple to green. Thats a lot better!

    EditPlus now has my vote.

    It loads fast even on my old 333Mhz AMD processor.

    Before I was all about NotePad, but EditPlus has changed everything.

    I use it, and think its invaluable, only problem is, as in all java apps, it's a bit chunky. itis my default editor for Dreamweaver MX and it's a great combination.

    Well I have to say maguma is about my favorite, most of the bugs have gone. However www.phpedit.com is superb, more features than any free and most commercial, still not fully stable, but they are working hard on it, I don't use it purely on speed, but you can speed it up if you can figure out the config and turn some things off. www.coldmind.com for hydraphp, but I don't like it, but it won't crash.
    Thanks to abulla for pointing me at winsyntax though, as thats what I've been using recently, no advanced features, just highlighting, which most of the time you want,(it does have class browser though). Basically the only core features mssing are global replace, find matching brace and indentation controls.

    If ya have the cash: DW MX.

    For free: aaaaaargh!! I would have said phpED - but they appear to have taken down all the sites where it lived . I'm sure a hunt around would find the free version. NuSphere bought it and now charge $299.00 for it.

    If you want features get phpedit, IMHO it has many more features than phpED. Of all the commercial editors I've tried phpedit wipes the floor with all of them (if only it was quicker) but like I said I use maguma as it has all the features I (personally) want, but recently have been using winsyntax as I no longer need all the code hints/autocomplete etc. Your editor is a personal choice, use what suits you.

    I prefered phpEd to phpedit when I was looking around, but things have changed!

    http://www.weberdev.com/PHPEd/PHPEdSetup3x.exe

    Is probably the last of the free versions of phpED. The fact that it has been left up concerns me slightly - but just fired it up and it looks ok

    DzSoft PHP Editor - that's what you guys need

    There's nothing better than a SPECIALIZED tool for editing PHP scripts. I've tried several specialized editors, and I think that the best one is DzSoft PHP Editor - www.dzsoft.com

    Html-Kit all the way baybee

    Tried just about everything else and never found anything I like as much. IDE's? Who needs em?

    Mind you if anyone could release a SOLID editor with proper IDE features I might give it time. But it seems like every one Ive ever tried is sorely lacking compared to Html-kit or even Ultraedit. Ive never tried Visual Studio, so Ive no idea if all the hype is justified. (Not designed for PHP anyway.....)

    People who hates debugging, I guess.

    I've used Visual Studio.NET for a while now, and I'm EXTREMELY impressed that something that good could come out of Microsoft. Definetly the best thing Microsoft ever did if you don't count .NET itself. However, it doesn't support PHP yet, as you say. Kevin Yank mentioned some company that might be working on a PHP extension for Visual Studio.NET, but until then, I have been very impressed by Zend Studio, actually. It's not VS.NET, but it's definetly not shabby.
