For permanent, remote drive access via ssh I use MacFUSE to connect to the remote location and mount it as a drive on my Mac. This is a superior option to built-in ssh or ftp support in the IDE because all the programs on my Mac can now work with files on that share. I also use CyberDuck for it's awesome cost and excellent Amazon S3 support. NetBeans – Best PHP IDE (Free Tier) NetBeans is the PHP IDE for masses, it is feature rich, free. Eclipse IDE for PHP Developers Package Description The essential tools for any PHP developer, including PHP language support, Git client, Mylyn and editors for JavaScript, HTML, CSS and XML. Php editors free download - PHP, All2MP3, ACDSee Pro 3, and many more programs. VideoPad Free Video Editor for Mac. Edit movies and video clips on your Mac. Free Editors' rating.
