NetBeans is a good IDE. It has download-and-start capabilities. It just opens Maven projects just like native (no plugins needed or import) and Maven integration is much better than in Eclipse. It has built-in content assist for beans in JSF both for CDI and Spring (there is no way to have content assist for Spring beans in Eclipse). One day it was the best IDE for PHP projects too. It is a good choice if you just want ot download an IDE, run it and code. However advanced refacoring utils etc. are quite poor comparing to Eclipse or InteliJ.
