Enter The Komodo Dragon

Komodo 4.0 from Active State is out of beta, and was released today. Komodo has long been viewed as the premier IDE for scripting languages (Python, Perl, and Tcl especially). It continues this tradition with this release and adds Ruby and RoR support. It's the first high-end IDE with intelligent editing and debugging for Ruby and RoR that I'm aware of.

Komodo also provides numerous tools for Ajax development including Javascript debugging, specific editors for XML, HTML, and CSS. Plus an HTTP viewer and a DOM editor.

If you work in any of the languages Komodo supports, you owe it to yourself to examine it (for free). If you work in any two of them, you probably should just buy it. At $245, it's a steal.
