    I switched over to Atom a few months ago and haven't gone back. The speed at which Atom is being developed is great and the plugins so far have been fantastic. All of the tight github integration has really sold me.

      What about performance? I've heard that Sublime is still much faster and less laggy than Atom, given that Atom is created with Electron (which is more a hybrid web view than a native app).

        It was definitely worse a few months ago. It's gotten much better.

        Still too slow to be used on large projects.

        I use Atom for many reasons, but sadly the performance isn't one of them. It still can't be compared to SublimeText yet. There's a noticeable delay when you type and opening and closing files and rendering syntax highlighting and so on all takes longer.

        It's by no means slow, but it's not instantaneous like ST.

      The stability of Atom is a deal-breaker for me. It constantly crashes on projects with a lot of files.
