Doesnt using spaces to indent code waste a lot of time? I mean sure if you're only indenting once, it takes a few extra key presses to make 1 tab worth of space bar clicks but if your code gets really deep, then you're talking about wasting a lot of time hitting the space bar key per indent PER line...each subsequent line of indented code doubles the amount of space bar clicks...

Am i missing something here? this sounds really dumb, as tabs make the most sense, and it appears use less memory as well.




Most IDEs can map the tab key to insert a certain number of spaces.


Pretty much any text editor beyond Notepad can, for that matter.
