Personally I use Notepad++ - but that is just me. There are far more advanced editors out there - just never found the need for the additional features they offer.

Best is relative. You'll need to try a few and decide what's best for you.

If all you need is syntax highlighting, Notepad++ is good enough.

If you want debugging, auto completion, code hints, help on the keyword under cursor, GIT integration etc, then you want an IDE:
- Eclipse
- NetBeans
- PHPStorm
- Aptana
- etc

HTH,
Dan

PHPStorm is best for advanced programmers; SublimeText is a good choice, too.  But if you're new to PHP and are still learning the basics, the simplest text editor is best.  That means something like Textpad, Notepad++, etc.

I have been using PHP Storm https://www.jetbrains.com/phpstorm/ and really like it after trying many others.  I also use notepad ++ for one off's.
