Aptana Studio is another good one with FTP support builtin and other good plugins/utilities.

had used it for around 4 years and still the best in my list

2nd place for netbeans

Hello...well I think following are best IDEs for PHP web development:

Codelobster PHP Edition
Eclipse PDT
Komodo ActiveState
NuSphere PhpED

Dreamweaver and netbeans are best of them.

Eclipse isn't too shabby, but I prefer Notepad++ using plugins, Sublime, or good old VIM!

It depends on the operating system you are using.
