What's the best PHP IDE/editor for a PHP newbie?

I have Dreamweaver (for XHTML/CSS).

I noticed Komodo Edit is free. Any good? It also supports many other scripting languages.

Heard good things about PhpEd, but not sure if it's good for a n00b.

Even heard folks like Netbeans (for PHP).

What say ye?

komodo is good, but i still prefer Eclipse PHP and phpDesigner 7. I use netbeans a lot though. has some nice features.

I use PHPDesigner 7 myself, and have done for the last couple of years. I've tried all the open source IDE's but nothing compares to PHPD in my opinion
