The Eclipse IDE, popular with Java developers, has displaced Microsoft’s Visual Studio as the most popular desktop IDE in the PyPL Top IDE index of September.

While Visual Studio was tops in the August version of the PyPL Top IDE index, it dropped to second place this month behind Eclipse, with Eclipse showing a 24.23 percent share and Visual Studio a 21.77 percent share. Similar to PyPL’s monthly language index, the Top IDE index is based on how often IDEs are searched on in Google, with raw data coming from Google Trends.

Behind Eclipse and Visual Studio in third place was Android Studio, which also placed third in August. Android Studio’s share held steady at 9.39 percent. However, Android Studio has seen the most growth in the index in the past five years, while Eclipse has lost the most share in that time. Eclipse and Visual Studio account for about half of the share in the index.
