It bothers me that IntelliJ IDEs and Documents on Google Drive don't require Ctrl + S to be pressed to save a file.

That's like my birthright taken away from me!

    We had a similar reaction from customers.

    We used save on blur for editing but so many customers was asking how to save that we actually added a save button that just does nothing. Clicking it already exits the editing area triggering save.

    But it is a psychological help ;)

    You know you've been using vim and Google docs too long when your psychological mapping of ctrl+s isn't immediately associated with "save"..

    AFAIK, on Jetbrain' IDEs, it works, it just forces the file sync to disk, or if you're using file watchers, you trigger them

    @Voxera that sounds pretty interesting.

    At the end proves habits are hard to lose.
