Do you mean Integrated Web Development Environment? I don't use one; I like vi[m] too much!

Thumbs up Quanta+

For quick and easy web development I use and recommend Nvu (too bad it doesn't get updates anymore). For my advanced web development I use Quanta+ and code the stuff by hand. Since this is the most common way I do things my vote goes to Quanta.

A good text editor like vim is enough.

Quanta Plus:
Has fair customizability so that less time is spent marking up html, once you get things set up the way you want. The ability to quickly flip between views makes the workspace fairly efficient.

Any good editor will do the job.
Or else choose the laziest choice and use Dreamweaver on Windows.

My vote goes for Bluefish, which I have mainly used. Works well.

As an aside, I recently came across Cssed, which I find better for doing css style sheets. So actually I use a combination of Bluefish for html and Cssed for style sheets.
