Overall Satisfaction with NetBeans

I and my colleagues, as software developers, use NetBeans IDE for our development purposes. It is only used by our technical department as it's an IDE and used for small development to major projects. Our team relies on NetBeans for coding, indentation of code, Git commits, debugging issues, minifying code and everything.
  • We can indent code very easily, we can define rules for the indentation of code in every computer language and it will follow accordingly.
  • The checkpoints in the code really work well in case if we want to debug issues in our code.
  • History of our saved code is really one of the best feature of NetBeans. Sometimes due to power failure or any other glitches we have lost our saved code but history of code really helped our team.
  • Comparison of code across different files is also a good feature to know the exact difference between code of different developers.
  • NetBeans [should] work smoothly with systems having less RAM. Systems with less RAM face trouble with NetBeans.
  • File open history also requires improvement. Once NetBeans is restarted, all files are closed automatically and there is no shortcut to open last opened files.
  • It changed my way of coding. In my early days of development I never indented code, but with NetBeans my coding way has changed.
  • One IDE for all languages. I can write code in PHP, HTML, CSS, and JavaScript in only one editor or IDE.
  • Atom, Sublime Text, Eclipse, Microsoft Visual Studio Code and Notepad++
All above mentioned is good for web development and Netbeans is an IDE which can do a lot more than normal text editors. File navigation is also easy in Netbeans.
OpenCart, PrestaShop, Magento Open Source, Shopify, WordPress, JIRA Service Desk, Google BigQuery, Google Charts, Google Analytics, Adobe Premiere Pro, Adobe Photoshop, Slack, HubSpot, Mailigen, MailChimp, Atom, Eclipse, Notepad++, Sublime Text, Microsoft Visual Studio Code, BrowserStack
It is best suited for if we are working with Git. We can push code to Git services directly from IDE. It can indent code differently based on language whether its Java, PHP, HTML, CSS or any other. It is less appropriate for front-end web developers as they just want normal text editors and all features of NetBeans are of no use to web developers.
