NetBeans and PhpStorm Reviews

PhpStorm

It costs a lot of memory and it takes some time to index project files! every time you start the application you have to wait for indexing it depends on the hugeness of your project.

It can get pretty memory intensive, but that's a lot of the IntelliJ IDEs. Indexing files can also take some time as well.

PHPStorm is pretty slow to start up, but again, in my experience that's a lot of the IntelliJ IDEs.

PhpStorm

It offers code inspections, which can help you identify issues with your code, which can be helpful narrowing down the semicolon or comma you might have forgot to put in. It also checks your HTML and CSS. It allows you to connect to a remote host, pulling the files directly from your server to the IDE and putting your edited files directly on to the server.

I'm using PhpStorm for more than 18 months!! it's my favorite PHP IDE ever!

It provides the most tools the developer may need for development! Database browser, Remote host browser, and all customizations amazing integrity and compatibility with most components and technologies.

I like the kaymap and new features for the keyboard! like multiple lines selection

You don't have to worry about missing features or tools! because thousands of plugins is available in the repository
