I think PHP does appear easier, since you can usually read exactly what's happening and people recognise the PHP doing stuff within a familar HTML structure. Although maybe that's with dancer etc now - it's a long time since I used perl CGI. It's also the case now that people assume that PHP is the thing to use. Poeple even talk about the LAMP stack (which is pretty standard and powerful, I have to say)
