Hi Experts,
Are there any neat tools that you use when developing for the web? The ones I know of and use are:
 - Fiddler: http debugger
 - Firebug: html/css/javascript debugger
 - Visual Web Developer: my .net IDE
 - Dreamweaver: I use for FTP
 - Exam Diff: Compares 2 files
 - PDFImageMagic: generates an image from a PDF file
 - iText: a library that allows creation/manipulation of PDF files
 - Aptana: my javascript IDE

Have any to add to the list or think there are better tools than the ones I use?

Do you use all three on one web application? If you use all three, what do you use each for?
