It's progressed enormously in the areas of php, javascript and html. No 
"visual editing" though, if that's your thing - although <shift-f6> will 
launch a page in your browser. But with excellent code completion and css 
management - which is visual, if you need it.

It has good integration with svn too, although lacks git, which is 
coming; it has cvs and mercurial too, but also has a wicked local history.

If you need server side debug with xdebug, then it'll do that too.

I was using Eclipse for Java, then started using Netbeans for Ruby. As 
the PHP stuff developed, I moved over completely.

The repos have v6.5, which is a good version.
