Uninstall or Disable Plugin?

The project I am on is using 'basic' Java i.e. nothing like Velocity or Spring or anything.
So I am removing most of the plugins to speed up load time.

Is there is a difference between Uninstalling a plugin and disabling it in terms of performance?

I'm with you.

Not that I know of. But IIRC, disabling has the advantage that they remain
disabled even after using a new build.

Hello opticyclic,

or Spring or anything. So I am removing most of the plugins to speed
up load time.

it in terms of performance?


No. Actually recent builds of IDEA no longer allow you to uninstall bundled
plugins, because it leads to all sorts of problems later.
