Aptana Studio Community edition:
"( Instead of focusing on the HTML,
Aptana focuses on the JavaScript
and other elements that allow you to create Rich Internet Applications.
One of the things I really like
is the outline view that makes it really easy to visualize the DOM.
This makes for easier CSS and JavaScript development.
If you are a developer creating Web 2.0 applications,
Aptana Studio is a good choice.)

but not installable by ubuntu .
