I'm busy filling out a skills matrix and under testing tools it has a list of different tools. I've never used a testing tool - I do all my testing manually and by trying to follow best practises and good coding.
But in the realm of Delphi, what are the known testing tools, what do you use, what's so good about them, etc?

I'm offering 500 points because I expect to share them out to a few answers.

Here's their list:
Manual testing
Automated testing
File Aid
Load Runner
Mercury Suite
QA Director
QA Run
Silk Test
Test Director
Track Record
Win Runner
Firefox
QA Wizard
Virtual Lab Manager
Zen Studio 5

I use AQtime from http://www.automatedqa.com/ they have other testing suites as well. I am suprised to see it missing from your list as it has been a standard for about 9-10 years.

I generally use CodeSite to provide an on-going trace to a CodeSite Viewer and do manual testing.  CodeSite also lets you leave the mesage sending functionality in place but programmatically turned off so that you can provide a means for turning it on and having the messages start transmitting again.  This is particularly useful when you combine that with CodeSite's ability to either send the messages to an IP address or to bundle them in an email and send the email (assuming an active email client is available).
I have used WinRunner in the past and it was particularly good for massive stress testing.  I have also used a few of the others but mostly only when dealing with a mainframe (e.g. File Aid, for sure on a main frame).
I also make heavy use of TRY . . . EXCEPT . . .  and TRY . . . FINALLY . . . coding.
