One star reviewers here are either too lazy to spend 10 minutes of their time actually learning anything, or just plain dumb and therefore don't have a privilege to use this wonderful IDE.

I tell you what - yes, it's JAVA, and yes, the interface is much more complicated comparing to BBEdit and TextMate, so yes you can't bloody learn this thing in 3 minutes. But once you do, you have every-bloody-thing you need to craft your PHP code! Errors highlighting, functions and variables auto-completion (so you don't have to bloody remember all these parameters of zillions API functions, or all these functions you have put into your class 2 years ago), you have even basic MySQL console so you can make queries from inside the single application! You can set your favourite font for the text editor (think Consolas which I think is great), you can change highlight colors, you have projects which remember their last state after closing and reopening. You EVEN have bloody classes links checker for you will be notified if some file which is supposed to be included in some of your other files can not be found inside the current project. Oh and did I forgot the excellent tools like debugger and profiler? You one star reviewers even know what are these two for??

Jeez.. some reviews just drive me mad.. :/

Zend Studio is an excellent IDE for PHP. Nothing exceeds it in functionality. Support is great. And it saved me hundreds of hours of work. Highly recommended.

The requirements are false, it requires at least OSX 10.4 because of the Java 5 requirement. Can't install java5 on 10.3 or less.

Otherwise, i actually like zend studio, it provides some great functionality that you can't find anywhere else. It's bloated, yes, i'll give you that, it can be a problem if you're not using a mid to top of the line computer.

True that!! you can learn PHP5, ASP, JavaScript, C, C++, Objective-C, C# and more much faster than this trashy app.

What a piece of garbage... Of course the uninstaller doesn't actually uninstall anything... If you love ugly, buggy, not intuitive, or if you just feel nostalgic about good old OS 7, by all means give this a try... This kinda app is supposed to make your life easier, not harder... PHP is easier to figure out than this program.

Please don't insult System 7 by comparing it to Zend Studio. System 7 was/is sweet!

Note that if double-clicking the ZendStudio installation icon will not launch the app (it shows up briefly in the dock then disappears), make sure you unarchive the .zip file with BOMArchiveHelper.app, NOT TheUnarchiver or the cmd-line unzip.
