Yeah, I am a code perfectionist and really don’t like any auto-code generators or use any WYSIWYG views at all…BUT…auto-complete and intelli-sense just makes you write good, clean code faster.
I use VS2010 (used Visual Studio since it was called Visual InterDev) a lot for my C# work but I’ve never used the wysiwyg view of it.
I’m a big fan of NetBeans and Notepad++
Using NetBeans for almost all of my coding and Notepad++ for quick changes and etc.

+1 !!!! At last.. someone who is using and appreciates Netbeans
I use Notepad++ pretty much all the time for everything because I really have a thing with typing out the code and everything myself lolYou have a point mate, but I think hand-coding and helping IDE intelligence for speed coding aren’t two different things. Just my 2 cents, I have a friend of mine who has the same approach as you and I think you loose time and money this way.
yeah I know what you mean. I guess it’s just when I don’t have a solid grasp of what I’m coding when so that I can learn it better. When it’s like HTML , CSS, PHP or something, the speed coding definitely comes in handy. :
aptana for php notepad ++ for CSS and HTML
dreamweaver or aptana for anything remote
Right now NetBeans IDE 6 with zencoding, the best in my opinion. My only concern is the colour scheme lol, I dont like it
Dreamweaver + ZenCoding! I love ZenCoding!
I’ll soon start saving for buying a license for E-Text Editor… it’s the best thing I’ve discovered this year so far – for 10 times less MB on the hard drive than Aptana it makes 1000 times more things than it, in a much smarter and on-the-fly way. This is my choice for IDE , definitely – I’m so excited about it, just finished a client’s website in CodeIgniter, completely with E!
I do most of my coding both for web and desktop in E-Text. Love the snippets and just all around feel of everything (project pane too). I only break out when doing GUI work in C# as I’m not quite sufficient enough to handwrite XAML /WPF stuff in E-Text, yet Or hand coding GUI coordinates in any lang really…
