Any experienced SQL DBA uses DBVisualizer over M.Studio?

Been at the SQL DBA thing for 15+ yrs now. Management Studio is 2nd nature. However my coworker swears by DBVisualizer even for SQL Server connections. I finally looked it over today and have to admit the interface is quite nice in many regards. I don't like Java dependency but barring that I couldn't come up with many complaints. However, searching around I couldn't find one experienced SQL DBA that uses this day to day over Management Studio. My question out there is has any one tried? Found any negatives? Performance? Thanks

It really depends on what work you do. Only you can decide if it does things you need that you can't do in SSMS.
