Feels bloated

Negative Comment by LukaD about Eclipse Also mentioning: IntelliJ IDEA Mar 2012

I dislike that many projects use this as there preferred development environment (e.g. Android). When I ever use an IDE then it's IntelliJ Idea for Java or Visual Studio for Windows.

I prefer NetBeans - it's easier to use, much more intuitive, well designed, and constantly maintained.

Eclipse is bloated... I like NeatBeans it has support for php and symfony framework.

It is so bloated peace of software...
It does not scale for multi-core processors.

Eclipse for PHP Developers is a coding tool for PHP scripts. It is not a WYSIWYG web editor, like Dreamweaver. From looking at screenshots at SourceForge, it doesn't even look like it has any visual web authoring features, much less any WYSIWYG functionality.

Aptana comes integrated with or as a plugin for Eclipse, so it behaves more or less like Eclipse, and is "Free, Open Source and Cross Platform".

I do not agree that this is a suitable alternative to Dreamweaver. Eclipse's forte is java development whereas Dreamweaver is a wysiwyg website development platform.

In my quest for an alternative, Aptana is about as close as I found. Although, if you can afford it, nothing (that I know of) comes close to Dreamweaver.
