I was using Coda until we had a training and the trainer brought my thoughts back on NetBeans. I have to say that it is absolutely PERFECT for all my needs. I wrote once on this mailing list how easy it is to set up debugging in NetBeans. It has nice code folding features. It helps me document the code. I can automatically format code to match the WP coding guidelines. 

And it also is the only IDE I know that allows me to separate my wp-content repository from the WordPress core updated through the official svn while still featuring all the code completion goodness as if they were in the same folder. Needless to say it features a great CSS editor and the ability to wonderfully code JavaScript (inkl. native jQuery support). And did I mention the almost perfect SVN integration, the full window editor and how wonderfully stable it is?

It requires a bit more resources than Coda or TextMate, but they are all worth it.
