Aptana is a robust, JavaScript-focused IDE for building dynamic web applications. Highlights include the following features: * Code Assist on JavaScript, HTML, and CSS languages, including your own JavaScript functions * Outliner that gives a snapshot view of your JavaScript, HTML, and CSS code structure * Error and warning notification for your code * Support for Aptana UI customization and extensions * Cross-platform support * Free and open source. (Source available soon)

Aptana seems to be a very powerfull IDE for Javascript (finally!!!). The biggest features is the Integrated documentation, merged with a “suggestions-system” that indicate standard and non standard tags and attributes (indicating the browser compatibility with icons). A screenshot follows:

Code Assist

I suggest to take a look to its screencasts.

Aptana its available standalone (running on Win, MacOSX, Linux) and as Eclipse plugin (it’s developed over the Eclipse SDK).
