Easy Eclipse for PHP

Today I have finally decided to move on creating PHP projects using EasyEclipse IDE. This great tool recently was in my mind but rather I was using UltraEdit.

After installing I have one very annoying issue with opening PHP files from Eclipse navigator. When opening some file it was opened not only in Eclipse Editor, but also in my default windows Editor - Ultraedit.
