    Just to say - really great IDE for a very affordable price. Many very well integrated components, very stable. I use it for several months and almost every day discover interesting new features. Definitely recommended for every amateur and professional HTML/Javascript/CSS/PHP developer.

    Over the years our company has been looking for a standard IDE for PHP development. After using Eclipse (PDT) (slow), Aptana (basically Eclipse with additional add-ons and more user friendly), Zend IDE and NetBeans, we decided to give PhpStorm a try.

    We never looked back. PhpStorm is simply the best PHP IDE at the moment. Its feature set is *very* complete. Pricing is good (both 'professional' and 'personal' licenses). And the developer is very responsive via their issue tracker, which allows up-voting feature requests and allows for discussing bugs, features etc.

    A shortlist of plusses that come in mind:
    * Excellent auto-completion for PHP, HTML, CSS and Javascript, that is based on your actual code, not just the standard PHP/Javascript pre-defined methods.
    * Code inspection; Check/validate your code (single file or whole project) and get early warnings for possible errors in your code.
    * Integration with various VCS; SVN (1.6 and 1.7), GIT, CVS
    * Integration with issue trackers allows automatically grouping changes to change lists connected to your issues
    * Direct access to your database for quickly querying and making changes to database schemas
    * Plugin-system to add additional features
    * Highly customizable
    * Cross Platform (Windows, Mac)
    * Quite fast; It's still JAVA-based, but works multi-threaded and a lot faster than Eclipse-based solutions

    I would urge any serious PHP/Webdeveloper to give PhpStorm a try. Try to download the trial or, if you need more time to test, download the 'EAP' release (alpha releases, less stable, but they allow for testing longer than 30 days).

    If you're looking for a *free* solution, have a look at NetBeans, but for professional use (as mentioned before); Pricing is reasonable and shouldn't be a problem.

    Also, if you're looking for the best-looking, simple to use IDE, probably PhpStorm is not for you (CODA might be a better solution). PhpStorm is a professional tool where features and integration are more important than looks and ease-of-use.

    To get an idea of features that you'll unlikely find anywhere else, have a look at their blog: http://blog.jetbrains.com/webide/

    A small update; The price mentioned on MacUpdate is for the *professional* license. Personal licenses are currently €94,00 and track their website because they sometimes discount the personal license for just €50. Licenses for open-source developers are actual free

    The best IDE for Mac. Amazing behavior with JavaScript, HTML, CSS and PHP. You can extend its functionality via plugin. Much better than Netbeans.

    Best PHP IDE Ever! Does some awesome things that I havent' seen any other IDE's do. It's even smart enough to syntax highlight MySQL embedded in PHP strings!
