Favorite NetBeans IDE 6 Feature
By charliebrown on Nov 07, 2007
Likely anyone who's reading this already knows NetBeans 6 is in beta. I really like what I'm seeing in NetBeans 6. I started using NetBeans 6 at milestone 10 and haven't looked back.
With all the great enhancements with NetBeans 6, my favorite feature is not an editor feature, newly added plug-in, etc. My favorite feature is the ability to download a 'Base IDE for Java SE'. It's a small 20 MB download, less than 1/2 the size of what I downloaded for 5.x, and gives me exactly what I need.
