I just tried to post a comment on the Inside Firefox weblog and it won’t let me. I don’t think I’ve tried to say anything too stupid there before so it must be taking issue with the fact that I was suggesting using Eclipse (with the C++ extension) as a C++ IDE. It can be a bit slow on older hardware but not as bad as you might expect seeing as it is Java-based. Presumably it is even faster if you compile it with gcj as clever people have demonstrated recently. It does still use the gdb debugger as the back-end but the interface is pretty and it integrates nicely with CVS.
