Web dev IDE with ftp
Hey everyone. Right now I primarily use dreamweaver. It works great until I VPN into the office,and then it moves at a snails pace. It isn't the vpn itself as the works fine in windows explorer, its a dreamweaver thing.
I'm spoiled and like to FTP directly from my IDE, so I tried Aptana. Same thing.... Works fine, until I try to open a project over the vpn, then it moves way slower than dreamweaver.
Any other recommendations? I don't use much advanced functionality, I just want FTP built in, and something to color my syntax.

If you really don't want a full IDE, I recommend Notepad++; it has many plugins, including an FTP client. You can edit scripts directly on the server, and all changes will be updated after every save.
There was also a thread a while back discussing alternative editors, so you may find something useful there.
