Our favorite IDE shows the best results in Germany and the UK: in both regions it is in third place. It should be mentioned that in PYPL you will not find a separate rating for Russia or Ukraine, where the results of IntelliJ IDEA would be at least as good.

Who is the leader? For those who follow the industry, the answer will not be surprising. It's still Eclipse, a completely free and open source integrated development environment written primarily in Java. Eclipse supports a lot of plugins, which is both its strength and something that pretty much poisons the lives of developers. However, this IDE, which runs primarily in Java, has a 24.93% market share. In second place is Visual Studio. She is not very comfortable there, since her popularity has fallen by 0.7% recently. Right behind it in the ranking is Android Studio (9.27%). The fourth position was taken by... the multi-mode editor Vim (by the way, it was included in our list of the most popular IDEs for Frontend developers ).
