It looks like this is broken in Mac OS 10.9 (Mavericks)

comment What to use for a plain text editor?
Just a note on Sublime Text 2: It has some really nice features for development. I especially like the "Minimap". It places a column on the right side of the editor that gives a preview of the full document, allowing you to quickly find sections of code based on visual text patterns within the document.

comment Parallels window problem
@LiJung it sounds like you solved the problem you were having, but I was having the same issue (plus a few others) and fixed it by doing the following: apple.stackexchange.com/a/89705/46825

comment My new iMac connects to my router, but not to the internet. How to fix?
Is your router set up with the default settings, or have you made modifications such as enabling port-forwarding, static IP's, etc.

The performance issues I've noticed are significantly decreased battery-life (due to the constantly high CPU usage) and a pretty hot Mac.

comment Parallels VM process has high CPU on Macbook Pro Retina when running Chrome in Parallels 8
Yes, the main reason being that I using Visual Studio's built in web server, which creates a loopback interface which is not accessible from outside the VM (not without a lot of trouble at least). Also, I like to keep everything on the Windows side when I'm doing Windows development. And to clarify, Visual Studio is not running when I see this problem. Using Win Firefox is an alternative, but I prefer Chrome's developer tools for certain situations.
