The Most Interesting NetBeans Release is Out: 7.3

NetBeans 7.3--probably the most interesting release ever is out. I use 7.3 dev builds since JavaOne 2012 and completely switched all of my HTML development to NetBeans (from Koda 2, Espresso, BBEdit, TextMate etc.). NetBeans 7.3 comes with great support for CSS 3, HTML 5, JavaScript, Chrome Plugin combined with GIT, SVN and Mercurial as well as integrated issue trackers. The CSS, HTML formatting and code completions alone were worth for me to drop commercial tools in favor of NetBeans.

Java EE, Java FX and Java SE are also well supported but this is nothing new :-).

If you are new to NetBeans, don't be disappointed. After a single double-click you will have to start to work immediately. You won't get any extra days to download the plugins and make your IDE work :-)

I will use NetBeans 7.3 (or dev builds) during the airhacks.com and all other events as well.

I thought you used Idea. Do you think HTML development in NetBeans is better than in Idea?

Does it have Live Edit feature and proper refactoring of scripts wrapped with HTML, with HTML inside them, like WebStorm does?
