Being mainly a Java developer I use JetBrains IDEA 
(http://www.jetbrains.com). Hands down the best IDE I have ever used. 
Blows eclipse out of the water. If I'm doing in C/C++/Perl/etc. work I 
generally use jEdit (http://www.jedit.org). jEdit is a solid, 
open-source, java based text-editor with excellent syntax highlighting, 
code folding and a slew of other features. It also has a great plugin 
architecture and there are hundreds of excellent plugins available for it.

As for looking for a C++ IDE, I've heard good things about Eclipse's 
C/C++ development environment. However, since I write in neither C or 
C++ on a regular basis and Eclipse has burnt me in the past (Java dev) I 
haven't used it. Also good things about KDevelop but again, haven't used it.
