List the software you use when doing web development and how they help. I use e-texteditor, firebug, web developers toolbar, cakephp framework and kohanaphp framework. I like using e-texteditor(PC) because it is lightweight and has alot of features like Textmate(Mac), you can create your own Bundles, macros to make working alot easier and the Tab Trigger has to be the best feature i use. Firebug is used for debugging and making changes on the fly to see the look of the website without needing to change the code and refresh. Web developers toolbar i use in a similiar way aswell. I have recently started using Cakephp framework and i like it already, it makes writing PHP and MySQL applications so easy as most of the base code and components you need are already written. The naming convention rule is great aswell. I was using Kohanaphp until recently when the developers decided to make a complete change of the core and i decided these changes were too drastic and wasn't for me. I still do projects on version 2.2 of Kohana as it is very flexible and extendable and has that Codeigniter feel to it. I will also say the learning curve for beginners can be a bit steep since the documentation is not that great.
