Many Web-centric IDEs will allow you to launch the page you are currently working on into an external browser. CFEclipse allows you to open a browser window inside the IDE itself. This is very similar to what you get in both DreamWeaver and Homesite. The difference in CFEclipse is that you can specify a single root URL for a project and always have that URL loaded when you fire up the browser.
