I thought that this may be a helpful question to kick-start the new PHP section!

I'm an occasional PHP coder and I'm primarily using NetBeans (https://netbeans.org/features/php/) at the moment. It's free and works well for my needs, but I'm always interested in alternatives.

I was using Eclipse and PDT, but then I got fond of Zend Studio, and now I'm using phpStorm :)
