What is your IDE of choice?

I've been using JBuilder for a very long time now (since 4 I guess) and it's getting a little annoying when working with JSPs. For whatever reason, the editor doesn't allow you to tab in a JSP. So I edited the prefs in the editor so I could, but it changes the keyboard layout. Also, they charge an amazing amount of money for "new releases" every 6 months (if that). These new releases seem to contain more bug fixes than anything else.
So, I'm looking for a new IDE. I downloaded JDeveloper, but I really couldn't get into it. I don't know what it was, but I just didn't like it. I've also tried IBM WebSphere. I did like this one a lot. My only problem is when I created a jsp, it gave me a .jspf file for whatever reason. The students at my Uni mostly use JCreator, which currently doesn't support web development. A new version should be out soon which does and that is looking pretty good as well. I think after using Visual Studio .NET 2003 my tastes have changed for a good IDE.
