The tools I use every day as a web developer

As web developers, we use so many different tools everyday. We can easily forget about everything we depend on. In the spirit of the new year, I want to take a moment to recognize all of the great products and projects which help me be the best developer I can be.

There's a saying out there, "You're only as good as your tools." (1) (2) This rings true in many different professions and in life. Tools that make you better at what you do are generally a great investment - typically risk free.

Here are my favorites. I use these every day, if not, every week.
