NetBeans started life as a Java Editor but with recent releases it has developed into a powerful text editor for web scripting.

At first glance, NetBeans is a little intimidating. Most of the menu items can be ignored by ordinary mortals. Using it as an HTML/PHP editor is akin to using a steam hammer to crack a peanut. Nevertheless the code completion, code colouring and the professional look and feel make it an excellent choice. (Review)

FONTMATRIX
This has been removed from the Ubuntu repositories and is reported to be dysfunctional.

Font Manager appears to be unstable. When trying to disable many fonts it freezes for several minutes every 10 or so selections. You have to select each individual font separately - cannot select a whole family at once.
There are far to many fonts loaded during installation (most for non-western keyboards), leading to a bloated font box in office apps.
