IntelliJ Idea.
Awesome Scala/Spring/Hibernate/JavaScript/CSS/Bash/YouNameIt integration (plus the usual build systems and DVCS).
Highly configurable shortcut system, UI, and "omnibox" search: I usually put it in "distraction free" mode: no more panels/menus/toolbars, all the space to the actual file content, then I can toggle visible the panel for accessing the filesystem/dvcs/maven with dedicated shortcuts. Same goes for building/running/code hotswapping.
