I usually eschew IDEs since they seem to get in the way of programming rather than really helping. CodeGuide seems to have gotten the balance right -- at least for my way of writing code.
Top 5 Things I really like (among many):
- On-the-fly compiling as you type so errors are flagged immediately - excellent code completion (with javadoc access) - excellent Ant integration - very good refactoring support - Executes on Windoze, OS X and Linux
There are a bunch of things I think could use improving, but that's a much smaller list than with other IDEs I've used.

Well I've tried using Eclipse on my PB. And since Panther neither 2.x nor 3.x (tried several of the milestone releases) works properly. They all install fine: but none recognise Java anymore- ie they don't syntax highlight or treat Java as anything other than a plain text file.
So when I noticed IntelliJ was on special offer ($140 or thereabouts) over Easter a bought a copy of that.

I don't see that problem, if fact I can see small colored images show many properties
