What IDE or tools do you recommend (or use) for jQuery programming?

I know I can adapt many approaches, but knowing what you use might save me some time as I'm just starting with jQuery and I wouldn't mind working with a tool set that is already well adapted for the task. I will find it easier to learn if I'm paying attention to jQuery instead of how to work around some tool's shortcomings.

So, what tool set do you recommend (or against)?

Thanks,
Bret

So far I feel IntelliJ has the best JavaScript support, Eclipse the worst.

But... what kind of support do you want? Or need? There's not a whole lot it can do except wild guessing at completions, indentation, and some classes of syntactical problems.

Yes indeed.
IntelliJ support for JavaScript is really massive.
I'm not sure if the community edition offers the same JavaScript support.
