Choosing a good PHP Framework

I’ve been doing a lot of googling for a advice on choosing a good PHP framework.

I’ve come across interesting articles that present graphs and pie charts showing dominance of different frameworks over each other.

I’ve been learning Yii for a couple of months, but, given the nature of how CodeIgniter support has been ditched by Ellis, it’s tricky to decide which framework is worth it to invest in learning.

Laravel seems to be taking a lot of the lime light recently.  I haven’t tried it yet, but looks like I might need to do a comparison with Yii.

ONE SUPER IMPORTANT thing that I noticed was THE NUMBER OF BIASED ARTICLES written in such a persuasive, seemingly non-biased way.

Important to “read between the lines” and realise that people are trying to push their own frameworks in such a subtle way.

Having good SEO skills doesn’t mean that you have the best framework or best review of a framework!

I’m just trying to find a good one with long term promise!
