It’s awesome! It means you don’t need to remember all the methods on an object. It makes exploring new frameworks very easy. It also means you don’t have to press all.the.keys().

Code Completion

IntelliJ will try to guess what it thinks you’re about to type. So if you go to a new class, and type pub, IntelliJ will offer you ‘public’, and you can just press tab and it will complete pub to public.

Methods On An Object

When we are playing with a new framework, or perhaps another member of the team has created a class for us, we want to explore what methods we have. IntelliSense makes this very easy. We create a new instance of the object, and simply press ‘.’ and IntelliJ will present us with all the methods. Here we can see all the methods available on a WebElement in Selenium WebDriver.
