PHP is probably the most popular language in the world when it comes to flexibility and ease of use regarding building web apps and frameworks. PHP has a very steep learning curve which means that regardless of you coming from a non-programming background, you can easily lean PHP.

Wat

And besides: if there's 15 "best" frameworks, it's really not helping very much.

As said, author should revise what "steep learning curve" really means...
Funnily, a number of these claim they are not frameworks, rather libraries (ie. lightweight, with less constraints).
Copy & paste of site blurbs isn't very informative, these lists aren't really useful with the lack of criticism/return of experience.

Beside, one of the main difficulty with Web programming, be it with PHP, Java or some other languages, is indeed the choice of the right Web framework! There are definitively too much. Of course, choice is good, but too much choice is confusing, one can spend days just by searching what framework to adopt before starting to code... :-)

There is nothing of value in this post that typing "php framework" in google and copying the project descriptions doesn't give you

So right. I just down voted a different "Top X..." list.

As somebody pointed out to me, this "article" is a lame copy of http://webification.com/best-lightweight-php-frameworks-2010

Contradictory statements. Steep learning curve but you can learn easily.
