I am new to PHP, but eager to become a "pro" ASAP!

What does everyone think about using an IDE with PHP?

What tools do you use?

I installed Eclipse PDT All-In-One on my MacBook. I am getting the hang of it, but it still doesn't seem as user-friendly as the code editors/IDE I'm used to in the Microsoft world. *sigh*

It is also frustrating in that there aren't any active and dedicated forums on Eclipse PDT, so I am hoping my fellow PHP developers can help guide me.

Happy Holidays,


Hey Amy,

I have recently been looking around for a Dreamweaver replacement as it isn't advancing quick enough as an IDE as I would like.

I think I have settled on Netbeans 6.5. You can check out it's features here http://www.netbeans.org/features/index.html.

Good luck with everything.
