What IDEs / editors do you use for web development?

What IDEs, editors, or general tools do people use to do web development? I'm a linux geek, so my tool of choice is gVim. But I'm teaching a course on this right now and don't want to inflict my prejudices on the students, and I'd like a broader perspective. So if you're a web developer, what do you use? NetBeans, Notepad? Something in-between?

Hide GMail "helpful tips"?

I have two separate Google Apps for your Domain (paid) accounts. In GMail, on only one there is this really distracting "tips" line of text under the inbox that changes every minute or so. It says things like "Add a personalized signature to all your outgoing messages" or "Google Checkout: Sign up for faster and safer shopping." It is right over the inbox use percentage in bold green and since it flashes when it changes it makes my monkey brain think I have a new mail and I look over at it. How do I get rid of it? It is not on the other one so there must be a way.
