Wow, such a useful topic. Here are few of my inputs on the softwares I use for development

Editing tools - Aptana & Komodo Edit or Komodo IDE

GitHub - Sourcetree

FTP - FileZilla or CyberDuck

File Compare - DiffMerge

Local Server - Xampp (planning to move to separate installation of php,mysql & phpmyadmin)

SVN - SCPlugin

More to come...

Well  aptana comes into play when I have to format the files or go back to android dev, unless its completely closed.

Komodo Edit does that fine for me, the formatting I mean.

Can you send the macros you used to format JS and PHP, and the option provided on Komodo.

I don't use any macros... Komodo seems to fix my formatting itself without any input.

Well that is my question. As komodo edit doesn't provide any formatter, so how will you format a completely un-formatted file in it(JS/PHP/CSS)?

I believe that there's a button somewhere for it; I do know I have done it before, just no idea where. In Aptana it screwed up my files, Komodo repaired them back to normal. Quite possible it was the IDE trial I used for a while though.

phpDesigner is one of the best php IDEs around, in many peoples opinion.

I personally stick to something basic, gedit or Geany does the job more than fine for me :)

Or for people like me who don't use Opera that didn't know that. :) I've heard it's not very good. I'll have to give it a test drive one of these days.

Dragonfly for me is far better than the inspectors built into chrome and firefox.

Couple of things I find highly useful.

Pipette - excellent for when you spot a colour you like and need to grab the html code http://pipette.en.softonic.com/
Pixresizer - good image resizing tool for quick batch resizes or file type conversion http://pixresizer.en.softonic.com/

Other than that I spend my life in Notepad++

Would probably add total commander but thats not really much use for PHP/Coding, i tend to use it for editing android themes and apps.

May I add one?  I suggest hxxp:www.mjtnet.com/ [nonactive].

It's a Windows macro suite, which can emulate/automate virtually anything a human can do.

I have used it to perform such tasks as creating 2000 web pages on the fly, in about 3 seconds, and to crop/annotate/resize hundreds of images at once.

It's also excellent for screen scraping (a great example for web developers.... take all the data from an html table and convert it into a csv or a text file in a matter of seconds).

I should declare that I actually work at MJT in customer support.  But I have nothing financial to gain from mentioning it here, and I know for a fact it's a godsend to those of us who frequently have repetitive and time consuming tasks.   If anyone ends up using it, I'd be delighted to help them figure out how to automate their tasks.

Another application I've found a great time saver is hxxp:www.imagemagick.org/ [nonactive].

Command Line image editor.  It has quite a high learning curve, but you can manipulate and create thousands of images in one go.  Simply and easily use wildcards to process every image in any given folder. 

It works as a standalone command line tool, although I use something else to automate it.
