I have previous coding experience with html, css, actionscript 2 and coldfusion.
I want to know whats the best editor out there is? I have used Dreamweaver for my previous coding and i don't like it. It feels to bloated and has way to much stuff i never use.
Anyone want to share what they use? Make me a recommendation, it doesn't matter weather its for mac or pc. I have a mac that has both OSX and Windows 7 on it.
I would really appreciate any help you can give me. Anyway thanks for reading my long post, and any advice is really appreciated.

Google Chrome comes with its own debugger, and so does IE8.
With Firefox you can use some extensions such as Firebug or Venkman
I usually prefer to debug in Chrome first, and then perform further testing in other browsers.

Aptana works, if you want a regular IDE with code completion, rather than just a simple a text editor.

if you're looking for an editor on steroids then Netbeans could be worth a look. well, actually it's an IDE as well.
some of the bells and whistles include:
1) code colouring
2) code completion
3) automatic source formatting (indenting)
4) automatically creates a corresponding closing bracket or html element when a bracket or element is opened.
5) when the cursor is postioned next to a bracket, the matching bracket is highlighted.
