Aptana Rocks!

I have been programming in JavaScript this past couple of weeks using Aptana's JavaScript Eclipse plug-in. It is a really nice Eclipse plug-in that makes creating and using AJAX components a breeze. The best part is their Firefox plug-in that lets you do step-by-step debugging of JavaScript using the Eclipse debugger. Beautiful! Jeff Norton, who used to be at ActiveGrid, is at Aptana now cooking up some kind of server, can't wait to see what that will be like.

Update: Added link to Aptana, thanks for pointing out the oversight, Rektide!
