IntelliJ IDEA 9 (Maia) lets you assign custom colors to arbitrary sets of files (Scopes) in Editor tabs or Navigation lists (Go to class/file, etc):
This helps you even more quickly than before understand which class you are looking at: JDK, a library, or your own app. The feature is available in Maia builds that you can get from EAP under Settings/File Colors.
