This question is still somewhat unanswerable ATM.. I understand jetbrains’ webstorm is the “best” tool available for working with JS, but of course, it isn’t free.
Looking at what’s available for a 0\$ budget, I’ve found this wikipedia entry to be quite promising:
Problem is: it’s a long list! For the time being, I’m working with cloud9 free edition, I’ve successfully set it up to work on ftp with my 000webhost account without a hitch, autocompletion is not that good, but it’s something (press Ctrl+Space for it to pop-up, don’t expect “visual-studio-like behaviour”), and the inline JSHint comes really handy.
Scripted promises the most powerful auto-completition experience and sounds awesome and powerfull, but I just couldn’t make it work properly on my system.. Brackets also sounds good, but it’s still too early.
The cocosino.org project sounded awesome, but it failed it’s kickstarter campaing pretty badly and I haven’t heard anything from the devs after that, I hope they keep going tho’..
EDIT: after going back and forth with some other editors for a while, I ended up coming back to my favorite multi-purpose one: Notepad++
