Does webstorm still take 5 minutes to start up, and max out the CPU as it's "reindexing" for the sake of keeping busy? :)

Hahaha actually yes, I often came close to hurling my 8gb ram laptop against the wall as webstorm took half a day to start up.

But on my new 16gb MSI it never hangs when indexing. All the benefits without the downsides ;)

That's too bad. I was hoping to check it out again. :)
I left webstorm for VSC in 2016.
I think I miss the 2016 version of VSC, back when it was lightweight and fast.
As per typical of most software project evolutions, it inevitably morphs into bloatware.

The old expression...
Software is never finished, it's abandoned.
