Oh yes +999 for netbeans!

I had tried it before, but it didn't hit the mark then, but today I have nice fast code completion and fully working debug sessions!
(Maybe because of http://xdebug.org/find-binary.php got it installed correctly at last?)

RECO!!!!

I actually use netbeans these these days, I got sick of aptana using up all my system resources. Also its SVN plugins are a bit over complicated

I recommend [url=http://www.jetbrains.com/phpstorm/]PhpStorm[/url]. It's a fairly good cross-platform IDE that doesn't use as much resources as Eclipse.

Netbeans is definitely the best out there espacially for the price ;)

I tried phpstorm I really liked it but since it's not free and it doesn't provide much more than netbeans I decided to come back to netbeans

I'm using Netbeans 7 (have also Aptana 3 installed but do not use it so much).

I have added .ss files and associated them to HTML files. So far so good but I don't get sintax highlightning and error messages (see screenshot)

Any idea as to how fix this?

Just want to say I've switched to PHPStorm - it is much better than netbeans (although a bit tougher to get the debugger stuff working) so much better
