NVU! I prefer HTML coding, but even still, a dreamweaver clone

Quanta gets my vote because of the CSS editor but Bluefish came a close second.

Quanta by a mile, Bluefish is alright. Nvu is horribly buggy and uses a slow XUL toolkit.

Quanta is my editor of choice simply because of its convenient auto-completion of HTML code and PHP coding assistance and its advanced CSS editor.

Bluefish, from their website
Lightweight - Bluefish uses on startup 40%-45% of the memory that other editors such as Quanta and Screem use, and during a full session closer to 33% of what these other editors use.

Quanta. KIO-Slaves and features others have already pointed out make it a winner for me.

While I use Bluefish and like it very much, I feel that NVU has evolved at an impressive rate in recent years, so it deserves to be the app of the year.

NVU may still need a lot of work, but a WYSIWYG editor is just so much more natural for such a visual medium as web design...

Quanta by far and away, although I have to say that Seamonkey produces some fairly clean HTML as far as WYSIWYG editors go.
