    Dreamweaver suits me too. It makes designing easier and make more graphics.

    Also, with it, I can be more creative about my design.

    lol exactly. Use PHPDesigner 2008 or NuSphere phpEd. Both are amazing. Those of you suggesting DW is better really are missing out. There is so much more in these two products than DW. And like it has been said above, the debugger is such an important tool for any programmer, that programming without one is just plain ludicrous

    Sorry, I'd have to disagree with this. I find it way too bloated and it's features aren't anything special.

    I can guarantee that anyone who downloads a trial of PHPEd will change their mind straight away, its one thing being a good programmer but it is another being a smart programmer. It saves time and money in the long run.

    I must admit that I tried Zend studio and did pros and cons against PHPEd, dont get me wrong, its a great editor and it from the god fathers of PHP but PHPEd did it for me, it was down to little things like built in FTP upload and multiple project management from a single workspace, I can have a dev project and live project in same workspace and switch between them so easy. And once i have finished I press Ctrl-Shift+s and it uploads straight away for viewing online.

    Also, does dreamweaver or other tell you when you have done stupid things like not closed a bracket? Will it autocomplete a function or class and also use intellisense on classes? I can write php without the need for all the fancy crap in text edit but at the end of the day I want to make my life easier, you can act clever by knowing all function names and their overloads but there is only so many times you can impress yourself with your own knowledge without starting to think that it would be better if it just completed the function for me. It makes sense!

    Those that have used the .NET visual studio would not move to an application that does not do it all for you, and thats why I chose to look around for an editing suite that did just that when i adopted the language, i knew there had to be a better way.

    I urge everyone that has not used PHPEd to go download a sample copy today, you will thank me, seriously.

    Dreamweaver is pretty much industry standard, although you can use any text editor to code PHP.

    I like that part "it's free too".
    Personally, I never saw a free edition of Dreamweaver from Macromedia/Adobe :)

    An editor is an actual program that you open up and use to write the code in and save the files in (like dreamweaver, notepad, etc.). A framework is like a set of libraries that you use to make new pages INSIDE of an editor. For example, I use the Textmate editor to make websites using the CakePHP framework.

    If you want something really light, I love Notepad2. It has a bunch of useful features, but I only employ it for the syntax highlighting and line numbering.
