Brackets I started using it a few days ago -- so far, so good. It's more focused on the front-end, but it has extensions to work with node.js in the back-end too. Some of its selling points (from its webpage): Live HTML Development As you code, HTML changes are instantly pushed to browser without having to save or reload the page. JS Debugging with ...

It probably doesn't match a hipster definition of "modern", but I suggest you eventually learn to use good old VIM or Emacs. There is a reason why they are still extremely popular. They have multiple buffers, macros, folding, syntax highlighting for the most absurd languages (syntax highlighting for mutt config files? sure!), keyboard shortcuts to increment ...

Notepad++ does what you want. It can autocomplete previously entered natural language words (no dictionary, just what you typed before), programming language functions, or both. Go to "Settings" → "Preferences" → "Auto-Completion". You can choose whether to complete words, functions, or both, and after how many typed letters the auto-completion has to ...

I'm partial to NuSphere's PHPED. I was looking for an IDE with a PHP debugger and found PHPEd. In the process, I found it also supported what you're looking for. It's feature list is impressive given it's relatively low cost. I had also looked at using Eclipse with a PHP plugin, but, decided against that because the debugger was "kluggy" to use. I ...
