Are LL(k) parsers still used in medium to large applications?

I thought I read somewhere, that top-down parsing is better for handling
syntax-directed editors like emacs? Is there a class of applications
that benefit by top-down parsing?

Could someone please point me to any articles that discuss:

1. A comparison of the benefits of LL and LR parsing


2. Applications for which these parsing techniques are best suited?

thank you
