Handy RubyMine feature - Open Current File in Browser

I just discovered a little feature in RubyMine that I think is very cool and useful. Editing a view file causes a little overlay to appear in the corner of the editor pane showing icons for Firefox, Safari, and Opera. Clicking any of these will open the currently edited file in the browser of your choosing (assuming you are working in development mode and have a server running).

Does this mean Netbeans is no longer your Ruby IDE of choice?

NetBeans is a great Ruby/Rails/JRuby IDE. There are somethings NetBeans does better, somethings RubyMine does better. Overall, I think I spend the most time in TextMate when doing Ruby work. I like all the tools. :)
