PhpEd and CodeLobster PHP Edition
As a developer, one of the most valuable tools I have in my coding arsenal is the development environment and interactive debugger. There are many IDE options for PHP development, but two that I like are NuSphere's PhpEd and CodeLobster's PHP Edition.
Now, if you've noticed (and you have, haven't you?) the screenshot above is XP. It baffles me why the developers haven't updated their screenshots when their software is constantly updated, but it takes a different set of muscles to be in marketing than to write great IDEs.
One thing to like about CodeLobster is that there is a free edition. I like PhpEd because the debugger is quite versatile, and (after a few bumps in the road), the development environment is quite pleasant to use.
What I like: Good development environments.
What I'd like to see: Meh documentation and support.
