In my humble opinion, one of the best editors for development of all  
time is Leo:


Leo takes the idea of "code folding" and gives you complete control  
over it.  That is, unlike other editors which only let you fold the  
code inside if/while/for/etc. statements and which only show you an  
outline consisting of a level for files and a level for function, Leo  
lets you structure the levels of your outline arbitrarily so that you  
can "fold" arbitrary chunks of code and do things like grouping  
together functions and files with a similar purpose or  
implementation.  By structuring your code as an outline, you make it  
easier for others and yourself both to navigate through the code and  
also to see at a glance the high-level structure.

Anyway, just wanted to use this opportunity to plug my favorite  
tool.  :-)  The downside about it is that the implementation sometimes  
feels a bit slow and clunky, so part of me really hopes that at the  
very least people will learn enough about this tool to take its ideas  
and steal them for other editors!
