If you still can’t find that ‘perfect’ IDE give Netbeans a try. I was recently introduced it and am still blown away by the amount of functionality and features it has. It’s similar to eclipse but I always found eclipse to be too sluggish to use on windows (everything seemed to take half a second to do which adds up and gets frustrating very fast).
The main things I like
- Plugins for things like CoffeeScript, SCSS, Maven etc which make life a lot easier.
- Shortcuts for just about everything, so if you’re a keyboard ninja you can get things done really fast.
- It has everything else you’d expect in an IDE (code completion, jumping to definitions etc).
If you’re a Windows coder give it a whirl, it’s open source and free.
