When it comes to programming and web development, choosing the right editor really makes all the difference. While searching for an editor, I looked for reliability, open community and lots plugins - that been said, only two words come to mind... Eclipse Galileo. Out of the box, Eclipse Galileo comes with editing support for PHP, XML, HTML, JavaScript, CSS and even Java and file extensions such PHP include files. Download Eclipse Galileo from here.
