Jasper and I were so seriously annoyed by the spinning beach ball in Eclipse PDT that it was decided to try a switch in editors. I used my free Zend Studio licence to check it out, and he tried Netbeans 7.0. I'm not here to write about the comparison, for me Zend Studio was -not surprisingly, as it's based on Eclipse- even more beach ball prone and quickly tossed aside. (read on for some of my favorite improvements).
