    I think the following 5 are essential:

    Dreamweaver MX (I havent used 2004 yet)
    TopStyle Pro 3
    Adobe Photoshop (Though I personally use ULead PhotoImpact 8)
    AceFTP 2 (coz I dont just use FTP to upload sites )
    Flash MX (again, I havent got 2004)

    Yours,

    As mentioned above I prefer TopStyle over Dreamweaver MX 2004 style sheet abilities. I like the way you can easily select a class now in Dreamweaver but you have more power to develop the style sheet and preview it in TopStyle without having to know all the CSS attributes.

    - Photoshop - of course
    - Dreamweaver for making tables
    - Homesite - Nice colour coding app. MX 2004 sometimes has problems recognizing the document and makes even html all grey!?
    - FlashFXP, great site management feature to keep track of all your FTP sites, great QUE feature.
    - Multiple browsers! No one has mentioned this, or that I've noticed, I've got about 3 browsers installed for testing. Get IE, Netscape and Opera

    I don't use much, here's what I need in order to create a website:

    Notepad
    CuteFTP Pro (which comes with CuteHTML Built in!)
    Adobe Photoshop 7.0
    Mozilla FireBird & Internet Explorer (damn IE!!! Gotta make sure my valid CSS looks RIGHT IN IE!!!!)
    2 Windows open: XHTML validator & CSS validator

    And that's pretty much it for me. I hate things like Dreamweaver etc. I prefer to code the entire thing myself, it's easier that way IMO, in order to maintain consistent efficient code, and to have complete control and know what's going on.

    LiveMotion
    SQL Server Enterprise Manager/Query Analyzer
    MS Access (Best MySQL frontend known to man, also handy for DB diagramming)

    Well I have to say I do use Notepad quite a lot as well to come to think of it and would probably be one of my most used applications. I like it to be open nearly all the time and is very handy for doing basic things or taking notes . I do prefer to use Dreamweaver as well though as I can create a graphic look of what I need the design to look like in Fireworks or Photoshop and then quickly build all the tables, add ASP, Javacript code and CSS plus other things which I usually have already created as Snippets which I can just drag & drop into DW. To do some of these things with notepad would take me 10 times as long even if I was a super fast hand coder. But I usually go though once the page is built and make a few tweaks by hand. I also hand code most of my asp unless I already have the module built. I guess after using Dreamweaver since version 2 then it's probably second nature and I would be losing valuable production time by doing everything in Notepad. I thinks it comes down to how you like to work and what your used to but I have no regrets and the production process I have tweaked over the last 6-7 years works well.

    Hmmm...

    Text Editor - Choose your favorite, they all do the same thing.
    Graphics Editor - Choose your favorite, they all do the same thing.
    FTP Client - Choose your favorite, they all do the same thing.
    Topstyle Pro - Best in its class and has no competition.
    Red Alert 2: Yuri's Revenge - Nothing gets rid of your frustrations faster than beating up on Yuri.

    Right on, another EditPlus user! I like it because you can search and replace text using regular expressions.

    It really depends on where you want to go. Here is a list for different situations like web-designer, developer.

    Web-Designer:
    1. Macromedia DreamweaverMX or Microsoft FrontPageXP.
    2. Adobe Photoshop or Macromedia FireworksMX or Jasc PaintshopPro.
    3. Macromedia FlashMX or SwishMAX

    I don't think that a web-designer needs more. Adobe have GoLive & LiveMotion pitted against Macromedia's Dreamweaver & Flash but I haven't used them so I wouldn't include them here. You can try them out though if you want.

    Web-Developer:
    1. Microsoft Interdev & IIS for ASP.
    2. Microsoft Visual studio.net or WebMatrix(www.asp.net) & .netSDK for ASP.net

    3. Apache or IIS & PHP4.3.3 for PHP.
    4. Microsoft Access or mySQL as Database.
    5. A good code editor like EditPlus.
    6. ColdFusionMX for ColdFusion.
    7. Perl installer for CGI-Perl.
    8. JavaSDK & Apache Tomcat or Macromedia JRun or JavaWebServer(java.sun.com) for JSP/Servlets.

    That should do I think. Hang-On, both web-designers & developers need a good browser for viewing all the stuff, Microsoft Internet Explorer 6 or Netscape Navigator 7. But I'd say, have a copy of older versions too for testing purposes since not everybody uses the latest in browsers!!

    And a CD of Cliparts if you don't want to make your own. This can come in handy & save you a lot of trouble.

    Have you tried the search an replace in dreamweaver? i have found it to be a good start.

    I know there's a lot of crossover between DW and the last three. A lot of times though you really need a small tool that does just one thing exceptionally well.

    I have to agree with most of those! I don't use The GIMP or Bkreplace. And free is good! Especially when you can't even afford shoestrings....

    Also, I recently tried Dreamweaver, but I am so used to HTML-Kit that I didn't like DW much.... So I highly reccomend HTML-Kit, unless you have to have WYSIWYG.

    1. Dreamweaver MX (not the very buggy 2004 version) for web design
    2. PaintShop Pro for most graphic stuff
    3. PhotoShop for the things PSP cannot do (right)
    4. Style Master for CSS (much friendlier than TopStyle)
    5. ACDSee for fast image viewing and management

    TopStyle Pro
    SmartFTP
    Photoshop

    i code my php on TopStyle, even though it wasn't meant for it, and won't support it much, but i haven't found anything else to use.

    i have these browsers for testing
    IE6
    Mozilla Firebird
    Opera7

    Opera is almost as bad as IE for css support. i found that each one requires it's own stylesheet just to look right
    There's no place like 127.0.0.1
