+1 for phpstorm, I love the shortcode expansion and it has code completion for things I haven't seen elseware like classes you've made in css etc.. Also the firebug plugin is nice, visual git and more..

I also use notepad++ for quick edits

For me Notepad++ is the greatest as a text editor. I think it would be unfair to compare it with IDEs though. I hate the fact that it doesn't have code completion. The Alt-dot trick seems not to work with NPP. I have used Netbeans and I love it for having a lot of features. It's written in Java so it is a little slow. I once fell in love with PHPDesigner but I dumped it coz it's not free. Dreamweaver is according to me on of the best but I do not use it because I can't afford it. I often get tempted to get it from my pirate friends but that is not me.
I therefore am going to stick to NPP and Netbeans. I am planning to try ST2 and the other things suggested here.

Notepad++ does have code completion (Auto Completion) to an extent, it just needs to be turned on via Settings/ Preferences.

Ugh, I respectfully disagree :bigsmile:/>

Scripted is a free online Javascript (HTML etc.) editor which might be interesting. I have a slight interest in it though as it uses my Javascript and jQuery completions :bigsmile:

Seconded. Its only noteworthy feature is the WYSIWYG editor, and for anything that involves dynamic content (especially if that involves Javascript manipulation of the DOM) that thing tends to make everything else doubly hard.

I used to be a Notepad++ fan, but I've replaced it with Sublime Text. It has decent code completion and I like the multi-selection editting. Brackets is another editor I've been looking at recently. It's being led by some developer's at Adobe and is written in html, css and javascript. It's being created specifically for web development and has some nice features that support that focus, such as automatically updating your web browser when you save a file you're working on so you don't have to refresh the browser to see your changes.

That Brackets thing looks interesting. The inline editing feature looks like it could be useful. Anybody know another IDE that does that?

That it's being developed under Adobe makes me a bit iffy though. Something about Adobe making open-source software that directly competes with one of their leading products doesn't quite sound right. I get the feeling that once it has matured, their support for the open-source branch will end and the whole thing will be moved into Dreamweaver with a closed license...

I remember fiddling with the preferences but it didn't give me much joy.
How do I get Scripted-master for Windows?

LOL, spot on! I find it so damn hard to drop NPP altogether too! In fact, I sometimes code using NPP only and I honestly don't know why (considering the fact that it looks.... well.... ugly... Guess that keeps me from getting distracted, lol).

For PHP, I use PHPEdit (It's old, but I still love it.)

For HTML/CSS, use the old Notepad.

hai..for me its NOTEPAD++...
Because NOTEPAD++ is the premier replacement for Microsoft’s Notepad. It has an auto-completion feature (for most supported languages) that guesses what you’re trying to write, a tabbed interface which is great for working with multiple files without cluttering your task bar, a powerful RegEx find-and-replace feature, code folding, support for a large array of languages (even Assembler!) and much more. These are just some of the features that make NOTEPAD++ my personal default text editor.

Komodo (I use Komodo Edit) seems to provide auto-completions and error-highlighting for almost any language :). (Well, at least for all the languages I have used with it.)
