Same here. I'm very happy with the capabilities of NetBeans when it comes to debugging. I can usually do quite everything inside it. It also handles the division between wordpress-core and wp-content without any problems and helps a great deal this way.

Nevertheless very often I fall back to the old var_dump/error_log combo, especially when I want to debug some stuff inside the loop or when I want to see what just happened in Core.
