I usually eschew IDEs since they seem to get in the way of programming rather than really helping. CodeGuide seems to have gotten the balance right -- at least for my way of writing code.
Top 5 Things I really like (among many):
- On-the-fly compiling as you type so errors are flagged immediately - excellent code completion (with javadoc access) - excellent Ant integration - very good refactoring support - Executes on Windoze, OS X and Linux
There are a bunch of things I think could use improving, but that's a much smaller list than with other IDEs I've used.

You either Ctrl-click, or spend the $14 and get a multi-button mouse.
Thanks Bear. I didn't know my "fancy" mouse came in any other varieties. Where did you get your mouse from Apple or 3rd party? [ May 15, 2004: Message edited by: Sonny Pondrom ]
Any USB mouse should do. (Personally, I use a USB trackball). [ May 15, 2004: Message edited by: Bear Bibeault ]

How do you right click an apple mouse?

Well I've tried using Eclipse on my PB. And since Panther neither 2.x nor 3.x (tried several of the milestone releases) works properly. They all install fine: but none recognise Java anymore- ie they don't syntax highlight or treat Java as anything other than a plain text file.
So when I noticed IntelliJ was on special offer ($140 or thereabouts) over Easter a bought a copy of that.

I don't see that problem, if fact I can see small colored images show many properties
The editor includes the following features: Syntax highlighting Content/code assist Code formatting Import assistance Quick fix Integrated debugging features [ May 27, 2004: Message edited by: Sonny Pondrom ]

I run Eclipse 3.0.0 under Panther 10.3.4 on an iBook G3 700 with 640 MB RAM. It runs fine, altho it makes me want a faster laptop.

I'm running elcipse 2.1.3 on panther. works fine.
if you don't have a 2+ button mouse, hold down CTRL while you click.. that's the same as right-clicking.
