I still use Notepad++. But it has it's limitations and the auto-completion is more often bad than good. Also it get's messy when you have like 50 documents opened. By using:

Settings --> Preferences --> General --> Document List Panel --> Show (check it).it get's more manageable though.

But there must be better ones but there are so many IDE's for JS. Even Visual Studio supports it (to some degree).

There's already a thread about this somewhere, but i can't find it right now.

I just recently switched from Komodo Edit to Atom (both free), because the former was rather limited. Atom is nice, but i advise against using the latest (beta) version, like i did, because it apparently doesn't let you delete files...

I tried out a few of them. My favorite ended up being Atom Editor after I added in some packages like tool bar and file icons. I also had to black list autocomplete in comments because it was annoying me. I also like how you can create your own snippets.

for myself I use Sublime Text 3 

I like the auto-complete who avoid me to have to write so many code.

Overall even if Atom seem interesting I don't want to change since Sublime Text 3 have a lots of contents and I like how it's managed

Eclipse (LINK)!

I've started using it for Android Apps where Google recommended it in the past, but today I am using it for anything also for uncommon and proprietor languages. I even used it for LPC and in LPC embeded LISP code (closures). Other than that I use Ultraedit (since I have a license from work) and Notepad++ for common text editing or for quick edits.

I vaguely remember the same, but I couldn't find it either before creating this topic and the search function has a 30 second delay + is not really strong in these forums. It's not exactly Google :p . I usually try to use Google instead (no delay, better results).

Anyway, I see everybody uses a different IDE. So not 1 IDE is by far the best then I guess.

Oh, you wanted to know the best IDE. Well, you should have asked that instead of the IDE everyone of us uses to write plugins :p .

Well I suppose the best one would be the most used one. Because the best one would (I assume) attract the most users. But we all use a different one. Not 1 person with the same IDE lol. Maybe should have put a poll in there. I just put a poll in there.

Atom looks very nice indeed,  a huge step-up from notepad++.

I found myself using Adobe Dreamweaver as it's what I instinctively use for web development.

I use RubyMine, which is essentially the same as WebStorm. I'm a huge fan of JetBrains IDEs.

I use Sublime Text 3.

Before that I used Sublime2, and Notepad++ before it.

I believe Atom may be nice too.

My rankings would be:

Top choices: Sublime and Atom

Runner up: Notepad++

Maybe not bad: Visual Studio Code

I would not use but I understand who do: Visual Studio.

I would never ever use: Eclipse and anything similar to it.

But each person looks for something different on their IDE, so there may be people here with the complete opposite opinion on all of those.

Notepad++. I don't know if there's a way to make it an IDE with auto-complete and intellisense, but I typically know what I'm looking for so it's not an issue.

Npp is good, free and lightweight. Maybe the only thing I don't like with it is the coloring it shows for JavaScript.

I use Notepad++ normally out of habit, but lately I've bee using Netbeans more and more just for the sake of auto-format.

Edit: Also, the error reporting in Netbeans is handy too.
