I spend more time working with the php backend interaction than the display side
so favor:

JEdit for editing
  Runs on Linux or Windows, free, syntax highlighting, SFTP, plug-ins, more.

GVim for editing
  cannot forget the power of :%s/from/to/g

Firefox with at least these add-ons:
  Firebug, Web developer

If applicable, I use the CodeIgniter MVC framework - saves a ton of coding.

I prefer PostgreSQL over MySQL (because of the not-null null problem in some
earlier production versions) but use both.
