There are many PHP IDE's currently available but PhpStorm just beats them all! It's availanle for every OS. Fast, Feature-rich, Customizable, etc etc etc. It just has it all! Highly recommended for any Web Apps Developer who takes his job seriously. This is the main tool that you don't want to miss.

Writing software, navigating code bases, and refactoring code. Intellisense and click through are heavily used features here.

Develop and debug Java code using standard Eclipse distribution. No special plugins; standard Maven and Git integration.

The best PHP editor. Also is a great MySQL/SQLite datasource browser, text editor, and I think it makes coffee too.
