I feel ok with BlueFish

I quite like Aptana Studio, if they would manage to sort out Syntax colorisation for php - it always looks broken

I love code::blocks for small projects, qtcreator for GUI development, and eclipse for large projects,
eclipse is the winner though

Love Netbeans, been using it for the last 3 years.

My vote is for Eclipse. It loves to consume memory, but it's well worth it.

I still make my websites with elvis (a vi clone). Nothing beats a simple text editor.

For more complex stuff, like web-based applications, I am forced to use an IDE. I've tried many and netbeans seems the one that is least annoying. I have no idea what the target audience is for Eclipse or Emacs: both just make me curse from start to finish. Not a single function/`feature' is in a spot where I would expect it.

I totally agree!

My IDE for all purposes, for all projects is urxvt/tmux/Vi(m), nothing else needed or wanted!

I use SciTE for web development and as a programming editor. I created a html.api file that brings up tooltip and auto-completion information for HTML tags. I can preview pages in a browser of my choice. I can also spell-check through SciTE using hunspell and it will check only the text and ignore the HTML tags.

I recently swapped to Kate after using Geany, I find the editor view marginally superior, split view works better for example, depends if I am using a GTK (Geany) based desktop or KDE (Kate), to which I use.

switching from emacs for all to netbeans for most
Using emacs as a long time unix user (I have even coded java in emacs for quite some time), I come to love netbeans-IDE.
I use it always for my java coding (SE,EE) and for php too. In particular the php support ie very good since 7.2 and we are at 7.4 now.

The extensibility of netbeans-IDE is a perfect match to the FOSS world and it is wonderful to be able to use the open-ide framework as the foundation of your own projects. The documentation is quite extensive, with a lot of tutorials and video intros on youtube.
Hope oracle will keep up the good work here.
