    When I read “Tools & Resources” I’m thinking about… well, tools and resources. This was more or less a list of available PHP frameworks. Why not title the post as such? A bit disappointed.

    Since you included a few application frameworks I am surprised that Zend Framework didn’t make the list.

    and where’s Zend Framework in the list?!
    ZF is the official PHP framework made by Zend, and that’s a nice framework I think.

    I would recommend Netbeans IDE to start coding over there
    CakePHP is okay however I saw a benchmarh comparison at DooPHP. Seems like CakePHP performance is slower than CodeIgniter. I think DooPHP cab be considered as fastest among other framework.
