            PhpED Rocks
            Ease of use, great highly customizable color coding, attention here: quick access to php reference & mysql reference! Support forum is of great help. Minus: english-only user interface.

            This is not a bad editor/ide but I had my problems. First off, the linux version is in RPM package format only which meant I had to rpm2cpio it to install on my Gentoo system. Also, and this may be because I did not use the RPM package directly, it did not pickup the correct LD_LIBRARY_PATH from /usr/local/nusphere to start the program. A little environment variable setting and I got it running.

            This IDE looks and acts alot like the Eclipse IDE which I currently use but am looking for more features. One thing I am looking for code insight for objects which is something lissing in all PHP IDEs but is something I love in other language IDEs such as JBuilder. This particular IDE does do code insight/completion, but not for objects.

            Once I got it running, I decided to change a couple of the default settings so that I could better relate to the IDE. I changed the setting for "disable code completion" from off to on. For whatever reason, when this is enabled, and I actively use it while coding the processor pegs at 100% and most of the time I have to kill -9 the app.

            Anyways, I decided to give it a 6star rating which may be a little high for a 30day trial version of this software. There is really no more features (so far as I have seen) than that which can be found in Eclipse with the PHPEclipse module. I would suggest, if you have not already, checking out PHPEclipse instead of this app.
