Well, as an evaluatory measure, I installed a large
web project from my day job only to discover that IDEA
insisted that some things were broken which clearly
weren't.  My confidence in it was undermined quite a
bit.  I'm going to give NetBeans a shot next week and
if I don't like it either... I guess I'll go back to
Eclipse and hope there aren't too many SWT oddities
outstanding... :|  The IDEA site wasn't organized in a
way that made it easy to look for reported bugs, etc.,
