Mmm editor wars.

For Win32, PythonWin (though it doesn't have what I think you're 
thinking of as a "source browser").  For Linux, Eric3 (make sure to get 
the latest release, Gentoo, at least, has an old one as "stable"), which 
is probably what you want (since you mention the KDE editor Kate).  
SciTe is also popular, but it's a bare-bones editor, while Eric is an 
all-singing-all-dancing IDE.  Finally, though I've not tried it, Eclipse 
apparently has some Python plugins somewhere.

Have fun,
