What is your favorite IDE? (for any language) I personally like Notepad++ because of all the languages. But since Notepad++ doesn't run on Mac I have Komodo Edit cause of the language support.

Notepad++:desktop Komodo Edit:Laptop

For most projects I use Eclipse. It has a nice and customizable interface and there are a lot of great plug-ins and additions available. Because of that I can use it when programming in PHP, Java or C. Oh, and it's free: that and the extensability is probably why I like it so much.

But when I'm just creating something really quick that only requires a few files, I tend to use TextWrangler.

Yes Eclipse has plug-ins for syntax highlighting just about every language.

Netbeans is really good for Java altough it slows down when you have too much stuff going on. I've been using Aptana Studio a lot lately, which is based on Eclipse (which I also use for Android dev), so I'd say Eclipse works for me too. My favorite "notepad replacement" though for code edits (I hate waiting so much for netbeans or aptana to load, they're bloated) is EditPlus 3.
