For C++ I prefer CodeLite, which surprisingly isn't listed here.
However I mostly develop in Free Pascal with Lazarus IDE, so my vote goes to Lazarus anyway.

I have to agree. gVim or vim with a .vimrc of about 100 lines is an awesome coding environ. I can't vote if it's not there because I use nothing else for cgi/html/shtml, Bash Scripts, Perl, PHP, Ruby...

Couldn't help but notice the power of Scintilla framework back when Notepad++ became popular. Add unix below and some great plugins on top of it - you get Geany.

Not wanting to start /that/ flamewar again; but why is emacs there but not vim? Vim+plugins makes a perfect IDE too. So either there are no extendable texteditors in here and emacs should not be considered an option too (makes sense) or the term IDE is stretched, in which case Emacs and Vim are on here.

Emacs is a complete IDE by itself, no plugins needed. Vim needs plugins to act as fully fledged IDE, so I think that is why it is not here.
Thanks to the Pentadactyl plugin for Firefox I can launch Shell commands from within the browser, but that doesn't mean that it should appear in the Terminal emulator poll.

Don't see the option I use in the list. For programming and web development, I use SciTE. I have several add-ons in lua, Perl and C/C++ that I call from SciTE to do various functions. For instance, I have the ability to check in and out files at a web site using the same protocol used by Adobe Dreamweaver and Contribute. So, if someone else where I work is editing files using Dreamweaver or Contribute, I can tell they're checked out in SciTE and I can check them out if they're not in use to edit them. It can also send files to the web site using ftp (and removes the check-out indication) when I check files in.
