I think everyone works for what used to work, and it will compliment your IDE or code editor. For the time I worked with the following IDE for writing JS code and they all seemed to me nothing:
- Adobe Dreamweaver
- Komodo IDE
- NetBeans IDE
- Visual Studio
But the web was not in place, there were new standards js, npm, ESLint, grunt, gulp, webpack, etc. This six less have time for fashion only Visual Studio. Time is of course very figuratively. About the rest, I generally keep quiet.
And when I met with WebStorm I am sure once bribed its functionality, modernity, following the trends in web development. So that's what I mean, VS Code is of course also a good editor, but its main plus it is free. In terms of functionality, modernity and convenience at WebStorm has no competitors. But you can only understand it using if not all, at least half of its capabilities. Many of its features are open only curious people.
P. S. Many people say that VS Code there are plugins, but all somehow forget that WS has them.
