Quanta rules, in my opinion. Bluefish comes a close second.

Quanta. It's autocomplete for HTML and PHP is great.

I use Quanta now. I like it over Bluefish because of some small things.

I like Screem and Bluefish, but actually... I do most of the work in GEdit.

Thanks to all Quanta users for voting us number one last year. If you haven't tried Quanta lately you should. 3.3 is very nice and 3.4 is just around the corner. The Visual Page Layout is getting more attention and maturity than ever before. PHP object and local auto completion is in work in CVS. Kommander has become a serious tool for extending Quanta and writing custom tools in 3.3 and will be one of the best secrets on the desktop in 3.4. The whole Quanta package is now the kdewebdev application suite with a link checker, imagemap editor and XSL debugger. The new Event Actions mean you can emulate just about any feature you can imagine as well as do serious automation and there are a lot of other new features.

I can't help but wonder if a lot of people who like Quanta still don't know half of the cool things it can do. ;-) Hopefully we can expose this power better along with KNewStuff and other features on our new site we're building. Enjoy!

I love quanta +... and I don't even run KDE, just Quanta. Its amazingly good at blending in to your work... To be honest I don't really appreciate it until I've spent 7 or 8 hours doing php / html /css and stop... then I am amazed at how transparent and perfectly adapted it is to me. I dont really even notice it while working... It lets me work without saying stuff like:"boy I wish the editor would / would not do this" or "boy this is bad" or "I really miss homesite". Quanta is it.

Quanta has everything that I have ever wished for. I only voted in one category here and this was it (would have done two, but fluxbox was not listed).

Try Quanta... Its really really nice...

Both Quanta+ and Nvu (wish Nvu was faster though) are good. Nvu, however, was very useful when it came to fixing broken HTML.

ssh, ssl, scp, etc

I cannot figure out how to connect to a server 'securely' using Quanta. I believe I will make a thread about that but I wanted to point it out here. Other than that, I voted for Quanta because it's a very useful program.
