Recent NetBeans 6.5 Reviews from Developers

1. PHP and NetBeans! -- Thinking Me!, 1/18
Muhammad Usman had tried using various IDEs to get PHP driven web applications germinated. After using Eclipse for about 2 months, Muhammad stumbled across NetBeans and realized that it was far better than Eclipse. His favorite feature are intelliSense, project and task management, remote project development, function help, smarty syntax support and integrated database query editor.
2. NetBeans IDE feature I would like to see inside Visual Studio -- A Developer On A Few Platforms, 1/17
Andrew Rea opened his post declaring "NetBeans is my IDE of choice at the moment for my Java development." He stated that there were two features that he wished would be included in Visual Studio out of the box; namely the ability to encapsulate a selection of fields or the ability to select the fields users would like to encapsulate inside a GUI Dialog.

3. Developing with NetBeans IDE -- Useful Ubuntu, 1/15
The blogger, an avid developer, had tried out many IDEs. He likes NetBeans the most because he can continue working on his program edits in NetBeans regardless of the OS he was using. He used NetBeans on Windows, Mac and Linux, and cross-platform support of NetBeans got a big plus in his book.

4. NetBeans 6.5 review from a PHP hack -- Unix Admin Corner, 1/14
NetBeans 6.5 made a big appeal to James with its excellent PHP support. Though James asserted that NetBeans needed some nips and tucks here and there, he really enjoyed the CSS module and the PHP editor since they both helped him find bugs that would otherwise have gone unnoticed. James liked quite a lot of other features in NetBeans including integration of the database explorer, jMaki, the variable/function auto completion option in PHP mode, and the HTML preview mode among others. He wrote, "I do highly recommend that all PHP coders give it a try."

5. A new PHP IDE rolls into town - NetBeans -- Mad PPC, 1/13
Brad was pleasantly surprised to see that NetBeans now not only supported PHP, Ruby, JavaScript, Groovy and Python, but also boasted great HTML support. He wrote, "This IDE has the makings of something great, it's free, and it supports the syntax of many languages." He went on to compare NetBeans with Zend IDE 5.5, and concluded that NetBeans "won hands down."

6. Kudos To The NetBeans Team -- Simon's Blog, 1/12
Simon Brocklehurst congratulated the NetBeans team for the fabulous work they had done on the NetBeans IDE. He loved NetBeans for its ability to provide a fantastic integrated environment for writing all programming and mark-up code, and for rapid deployment of services to the test environment. He noted that NetBeans handles multiple programming languages and system services easily, which is the highest test of efficiency for any IDE. Praising NetBeans Simon exclaimed, "It's seriously impressive. I recommend it highly."
