Ideal Tool for Apex Development

I am new to salesforce and would like to know the ideal IDE for apex development. I tried Developer Console, but  for beginners its very difficult to code in that. What are IDE tools that are generally used in industry?

At my point of view Eclipse is the best way to write apex code
Some benifits are listed below
   1. you can save your code back up in your local machine, in case of any internet failur
   2. you can intedent your code properly
   3. it is possible to get the intellisence also
   4.Syntax highlighting for the Apex key words.
   5.Code assist for Apex system classes, user-defined classes, and schema objects.
   6.Click-to-line integration with errors and testing views.
   7.Unlimited undo and redo.

Selection of tool will depend on the volume of developement.

If you are just trying out things, experimenting and code is not huge then I suggest the inbuild Salesforce tool is best, you can see output as you work on it.

else what Sagarika told is true.
