Guide Review - Nusphere PhpEd version 4.7 - Web Editing Software Customer Review
This software is great for PHP of course but is also great for HTML & CSS. It is geared more towards programmers and less for designers, there is no WYSIWYG but you can add browsers to the menu and launch your design with any browser you own. This is a great feature for quickly checking how things work with many different browsers.
This software also comes with the most extensive documentation I've seen. A complete PHP, HTML and CSS reference library is all part of the installation. It also has a nice debugger which lets you set breakpoints, step through code and examine variables on the fly.
If you are working on multiple projects you can set them up in workspaces so when I want to work on project 'A' all the files I need for that project are saved and opened as a group, a great time saver. Since I like to do all my work by hand coding I really don't see a better value out there for this kind of work. It's a lot of product for the money.
