See below:

* Firebug if using firefox:
http://getfirebug.com/

Super helpful for searching through the dom and editing in page. Also very good for script debugging and you can add lots of extensions on it to do extra debugging e.g. AMF explorer for searching AMF responses and requests.

* Web Developer tool bar:
http://chrispederick.com/work/web-developer/

Very similar to firebug but with a few extras added in

* A decent browser
Get yourself a decent, standards compliant browsers such as opera, firefox or chrome. They make developing easy. Just remember sites do need to work in IE .. unfortunately.

* A decent IDE
Dependant on what language you are using. Dreamweaver will handle pretty much all as will eclipse in its various forms. Visual Studio is good for .Net developing.

Probably more but that will get you started
