The recent javalobby post requesting feedback about the new 6.5 browser quirks mode inspections resulted in lots of people complaining about the performance of IntelliJ.
So here's my idea - provide statistics about the code inspections - ie how long they take, preferably as a percentage.For example, I assume doing things like calculating the cyclomatic complexity takes longer than a lot of other inspections. Or maybe the inspections provided by a plugin have been badly coded and run slowly.
Being able to see which inspections take the most time, I could turn them off and get back to the fast IntelliJ of old!
(Having said that, I think the current version is just fine in terms of performance.)
Perhaps someone can write a plugin.
