As somebody mentioned here the editor that has "match brace" can be used to track it but that does not solve the problem itself, rather it provides a rather inefficient (for complex script) way to troubleshoot one. Which arise especially often if you modify the script.
I would submit that, if you have enough levels of nested blocks that "match brace" becomes a cumbersome and "inefficient" tool, then your problem is that your code is overly-complex and poorly-structured, not any issue with the language or the editor. Good code does not have 47-level-deep nested blocks.
