None has the best perfomance. Just try them all, it's a matter of personal taste ...

I'd also say it's about personal taste...

Also, some companies look for people who knows one of them, so it might help you decide for one.

In my case, I ended up using Eclipse because it comes with Fedora 8, but I have worked with NetBeans (some years ago) and I liked it also...

Eclipse used to be number one but I feel that Netbeans is the better one nowadays.

Personally I use Netbeans and I am very satisfied. I've used eclipse for about a month but most times it requires plug-ins etc so I turned to netbeans which is more integrated from the pack But as it is mentioned above it's a matter of taste

For best performance, use a text editor like jedit or gedit. The actual IDEs are mostly personal taste. Although, Eclipse has REALLY bloated up and gotten slow recently, so I give the nod to Netbeans nowadays. It's larger and slower than is desirable too, but not as bad.

Another vote for NetBeans. It has nice profiling features built in as well. The latest version is great, aside from the stupid decision to use the GTK look & feel by default - you can easily go back to the Metal version by dropping a line into the global configuration file.
