Favourite Web-dev IDE?

Hey,

I'm looking for alternative IDE to use. I love Coda on my Mac but unfortunately most of my time I am developing on my custom built Windows machine, so I am unable to use it. I've tried Dreamweaver and Komodo Edit, but don't feel like I have found the ultimate IDE. Notepad and Notepad++ are a little too bare for my liking.

What do you use?

https://koding.com/ looked rather interesting - neat features but still in development

http://c9.io would be in the same class as koding for a web-based IDE

I have been using Sublime Text 3 and it is wonderfully simple as well as light enough to be an everyday text editor. Aptana studio 3 is okay too, but its just too heavy for me. Likewise with Dreamweaver.

I cringe at the words IDE and web development being used in the same sentence.

Sublime 2/3 with Package Control and a good number of helpful plugins should be all you need.

Webstorm is great if all you're trying to do is basic webdev, nothing backend.

It's by Jetbrains s.r.o, but sadly is not free.

Sublime Text 3 is what I'd recommend if Jetbrains' IDEs aren't your cup of tea.

Light Table is pretty interesting.
Looks pretty neat, rather similar in appearance to Sublime Text - with the preview area on the side. I'll have to keep this on my watch list.

Edit: After further inspection it looks rather neat to be honest - I'll probably get a copy of it if its cheaper than Sublime Text. I estimate it'll be ~$50 once its released.

Sublime is great, light, easy and straightforward to use.  I hate all the bloat of other IDE's
