Do not bother saving files anymore
I guess pressing Ctl+S every 20 seconds is not just my muscular habit. But once I started using IntelliJ IDEA and now Web IDE, this habit vanishes.
Files you are editing in Web IDE are instantly saved to disk when you switch to another application. This is not the only thing JetBrains IDEs do for us and comes very handy when you work on HTML and need to often check your changes in the browser. You just do a change and switch to the browser. Everything is saved and when you refresh the page, your changes are there. Forget about doing Ctrl+S!
There are some related IDE settings that may be useful:
- Files synchronization settings (in IDE Settings | General)
- Mark modified tabs with asterisk (in IDE Settings | Editor | Editor Tabs)
