first is sublime text and second is phpstorm. both are cross-plateform. I tried both and both is working fine. I finally go with sublime text 2.
Here is the reason why sublime text 2 is awesome.
phpstorm and sublime text 2 both is licensed software. In sublime text 2 you can use it for unlimited time when phpstorm is available for 30 days only.
Sublime text 2 is very memory efficient and lightweight software this is first thing people found best in sublime text 2. in phpstorm problem for me is sometime it’s goes unresponsive when I tried html5 boilerplate. sublime text 2 is never hang depend on memory size of project compare to phpstorm.
in Sublime text 2 you can got better speed at coding after learning some shortcut and basic thing applied specially sublime text 2. Sublime text 2 come with distraction free mode when phpstorm have nothing with full-screen.
Sublime text 2 support almost every language. I have seen many people in community who has move from their PHP IDE to sublime text 2. You can use LESS and coffeescript in it. There are many kind of customization out in github regarding sublime text 2.
In past I also have also tried webmatrix. the latest version of webmatrix have nothing good as sublime text 2. Sublime text 2 is best fit for my requirement.

I have write How to run PHP in Webmatrix ? few months ago. In this post I will try to explain it little bit better.
When you create a website in webmatrix then try to go to site > settings > here you can find the option for enble the PHP for your website on IIS express.
You can also install the PHP through WPI (web platform installer). The PHP you have installed will be going into C:\Program Files (x86)\IIS Express\PHP/$
$ = version of PHP you have installed.
