Web development tools

Web development tools

As i go deeper into web development i have come across some good development, designing, and debugging tools and i wanted to share them with you. Please add your favorites to this list. I have relied the many tools provided along with firefoxFireFox in many cases.

FireBug (My personal favorite) : It is truly a revolutionary tool for web developers. The features in this tool require an entire website dedicated to it. Some of the features are console logging, error stack trace, code profiler, code inspector, DOM inspector and much much more.
IE Tab: Firefox addon that allows you to view your page with IE straight from Firefox (No more need to open IE)
Fiddler 2: Web debugging proxy, a very important tool for changing and monitoring http requests. This tool helps you change user agents and test your apps. I have found it to be very helpful in developing websites for different mobile interfaces.
JSUnit: A Unit Testing framework for client-side (in-browser) Javascript. It is essentially a port of JUnit to Javascript. Also included is a platform for automating the execution of tests on multiple browsers and multiple machines running different OSs.
PuTTY: A Telnet/SSH client.
Notepad++: A great source code editor. Excellent editor for as many languages as i can think of.
Aptana Studio Community Edition: IDE for AJAX development.
Web Developer: A Firefox add-on that incorporates many useful tools for web developers
I will add more soon. Share your favorites.

Re: Web development tools

I have been using Fiddler for some time and it is very reliable. But if all you want to do is change user agent information then a plug-in for firefox has the right answers - it is called 'user-agent-switcher' you can find it at this URL user agent switcher
