NetBeans helps quite a lot.  I've been shamefully spoiled by it and
tend to use it even just to browse code when I have no intent to
develop it.  I've used Eclipse (not STS though) and was happy to see
the back of it after losing too much time to plugins-disease.

I hear that IntelliJ is good with Maven projects too.
