    My personal choice is Aptana Studio

    If you are looking for an open source one, you can go for Netbeans. Its pretty good and I use it so am saying from experience.

    Id say Notepad++ it is… I like it versatility. Its helps you learn the markups as it doesnt spoon feed you.

    My recommendation is phpDesigner 7.

    phpDesigner is pretty good, full ftp support for editing directly on the server.
    It also has live error checking of code because it runs php in the background. Pretty good for incase you mis a semi-colon on the end of a line.

    Shame you have to pay for the newest version though, I think the older version is free.

    Based on suggestions received here, I’ve been using notepad++ for writing php, html and css. There is one thing I wanted to ask to anybody who can help –

    Hitting the shortcut key Ctrl+Shift+Q in a .php file opened in notepad++ always comments out the selected code in this style.

    /* code here */

    The above style is applied by the notepad++ even if I hit the shortcut key in html codes which are outside . Is there a way by which I can comment out the html code using a shortcut key in the html style in the .php file.

    Not that I have found.

    Best bet is to record a Macro, save it, and then create a short-cut for it. I just tried it and it works well.

    Just record: ‘HOME’ <!– ‘END’ –> That will comment out the single line (not the paragraph)

    Record another brave macro to delete the first 4 characters and the last 3 and your set!

    I use free Portable PHP IDE Codelobster PHP Edition.

    It have all possibilities like requiring payment IDE, but it really smaller and faster.
    It have pleasant interface and plugins for all most popular frameworks.
    Especially i like CSS inspector which shows all styles belonging to
    selected element which can be edited at once in proper CSS file.
