Surprising results. I always use the p2 update manager. For example the Google pages point to their update site and not to the marketplace. Therefore I assume the real numbers are quite different.
@Lars For sure the actual numbers are much higher and this ranking is biased to the products listed in the Marketplace Client.
Subclipse being twice as popular as Subversive in the overall stats, that should tell us a bit about the quality and sense of these providers ?;-)
Would be nice to see the Aptana folks work with the EGit and JGit teams to ensure compatibility instead of developing their own solution.
I like PyDev and Maven too
Other useful plugins are Jenkins and snip2code.
With snip2code I find many interesting free code snippets and I collect them quickly. Recommended.
I I recommend my two small open source plugins … 🙂
