PHP Editor which can also debug

I spent some time looking around for a software development environment which can easily support breakpoints in PHP code.

After testing several IDEs, including the Eclipse, IntelliJ, PHPStorm, and Komodo. 

My final recommendation is phpDesigner.  Here is a screen shot (from their website):

After looking at the specs of this software; it may be worthwhile to also look into vs.php; which looks like a compelling tool to have if you are a fan of the Visual Studio IDE.

Both vs.php and phpDesigner use Xdebug as their back-bone.  Kudos to the Xdebug project for creating a platform that others can use to create great php debugging applications.
