I've been extremely happy with PhpStorm+Zend Debugger on the Mac.  I first tried NetBeans but it was sluggish and the debugging experience was less than usable compared to PhpStorm. PhpStorm also has a lot more high-end coding features for finding and refactoring code.  Definitely worth the US$99 for a personal license. JMTCW.
