Companies can't remove reviews or game the system. Here's why
Microsoft Visual Studio IDE is the oldest player on the market and it has some really good features, however. JetBrains Rider despite being on the market for a much shorter time is an excellent IDE solution as well—super fast and very stable. Frequent updates are very neat and always bring additional value. Visual Studio Code, on the other hand, is quite simple and not that good for enterprise types of projects.
Rider (and the entire IntelliJ suite) has been my preferred IDE for years. Visual Studio is wonderful as well, but Rider just keeps ahead in the important features. More importantly, both IDEs provide healthy competition and I only see this getting better.
Compared to other popular IDEs that aren't .NET specific (such as Eclipse), I don't see any reason to use them unless you need specific features or plugins that the JetBrains family doesn't support.
Rider is hands down smoother and way less glitchy than Visual Studio Enterprise. There are way more refactoring capabilities and spell check so that your code is readable, maintainable, and easy to follow. Since Rider is cross-platform, our developers are no longer constrained to only using Windows. We can now get a familiar development environment across Mac, Windows, or Linux!
JetBrains supports .NET development with Rider, a .NET IDE based on the IntelliJ platform and ReSharper.
