Just give it a try :)

Pretty good

about PhpStorm and Eclipse Jun 2012

The refactoring features alone make it worth buying. Mercurial support is still sketchy and basic though. Not as fleshed-out as the hg Eclipse plug-in for sure. Not bad enough to put it down on the other hand.

UNDERRATED !

Positive Comment by Walkman
about PhpStorm and Eclipse, Zend Studio, NetBeans Mar 2012

Why is the BEST IDE for web development is so underrated ? This is THE perfect IDE you can dream about.

You can't really say a feature that is missing from this, and the user interface is so beautiful too !

There is a free version with Earyl Acces Program (EAP) so you only need to pay for professional support if you need.

So responsive, if I want to bring a metaphor for speed, Phpstorm is a gepard and Eclipse is a turtle !

Multi-platform too ! You can use it on linux, Mac, Windows, and export-import the settings in one sec !

There are a ton of built-in keymaps; so switching from eclipse, netbeans even emacs or vim is very easy ! You just set up the keymap you used to and that's all !

Very good version control and task management systems.

Even if you can't find the language support or feature you need, there are a tons of downloadable plugins, or you can make a request to the developers via their issue tracker !!!

You should try it out, you will LOVE it, I promise !
(I'm no any way connected to intellisense. I just love what they built !)
