  1. Eclipse - 44%
  2. NetBeans - 40%
  3. IntelliJ IDEA - 14%
  4. others - 2 %

Total votes: 2108
JavaMagazin covers a lot of Eclipse stuff. They also publish a dedicated Eclipse Magazin - so the result is really interesting. Btw. the "others" are: JDeveloper, WAS, Notepad, Emacs etc :-).

For correctness you have to search also with the keyword "java" before "Netbeans". And in this case you will see again the same chart as before withouth the "java" keywords. But there is already a filter with name "computer and electronics" selected..

However, the common result of this chart and the quickvote result is that Netbeans increases his popularity.
