Fully-loaded, Versatile Web Development, Product Needing Improvement in Scalability

What is most valuable?

How has it helped my organization?

It has helped my team develop better because of its versatility and functions.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

On a PC, always, but not really on a Mac.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Yes, the more you add, the slower the program gets.

How are customer service and technical support?

As previously mentioned, the forum is useless.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I used several other options, this is the best so far in terms of general usability.

How was the initial setup?

Incredibly straightforward, which is is one of the best parts of NetBeans. Its incredibly useful out of the box.

  • WeBuilder
  • Notepad++
  • Aptana
  • JetBrains
  • Atom

What other advice do I have?

It’s a great option for web development.
