"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

A code editor, I use HTML-Kit http://www.chami.com/, CoreFTP http://www.coreftp.com/ and Filezilla https://filezilla-project.org/ .  For images, I use IrfanView http://www.irfanview.com/ for simple stuff and GIMP http://www.gimp.org/ and Photoshop http://www.adobe.com/ for more complicated jobs.

For comparing files, I use Winmerge http://www.winmerge.org/ and for searching thru files, I use WinGrep http://www.wingrep.com/ .

This page http://www.dibsplace.com/webdev/ndx02.html lists a number of other softwares I use at times.

I have used Aptana Studio recently but due to the fact i have just graduated from University i had a one year license from PHPStorm which seems it covers just about everything...
Also Source Version Control is a must ...i prefer  Mercurial

It depends on the development environment - I use whatever my colleagues use.  

For recent projects, I host "origin master" and "origin develop" code on Atlassian BitBucket and use Git for version control.  (This could also be on GitHub).  I use any text editor; PHP IDE systems don't appeal to me, but certainly they have value if you care to take the time to learn the automation and bend it to your will.  For database work, I like SequelPro.  For image work I use Photoshop.  I'm currently unsure what to use for animations; looks like Flash is dying.  For FTP I use an ancient copy of WS-FTP and a newer copy of Filezilla.  For server-side testing I use PHPUnit and Mockery.  I've used a bit of Jasmine for client-side testing.  Access to the error_log files is important; a one-touch locator command is great.

You probably want to learn about NPM and Composer.  

Since a one-touch build is an absolute necessity, you may also want to learn about Grunt and Gulp.  They will save you a lot of time if you've got a multi-component application.

I use "Netbeans" for all projects and it helps easily navigate , search, and organize better. For any kind projects like YII, CodeIgniter, PHP related with HTML/CSS supported.

I use Filezilla for deployment tool and for source control I use SVN configured for check-in and check-out

Thank You guys for sharing your "secrets".

I use yeoman(gulp+bower) for front-end- I customized it a bit, ST3 with all the powerfull packages (it's just the best for me).  For version control I use git+bitbucket. And for deploying I use ssh whenever I could :-)
