What software are you using when you are developping a web site ?
I personally use the following :
Adobe Photoshop / Adobe Illustrator for all the arts part,
SmartFTP, so I can upload as soon as I am ready,
and finally Winamp to keep me entertained !
So, what about you :)?April 1, 2008 at 1:29 pm #46628o-dMember
Globalscape Cuteftp and filezilla for ftp thing.
of course Firefox to browse and firebug, webdeveloper toolbar and some reaaly good addon with it.
winamp to listen and bsplayer to watch video.April 1, 2008 at 1:47 pm #46629Historical Forums UserParticipant
+ all default debug tools, yslow, firebug, toolbar, script debug, memory leak detector, element inspectors, color inspectors, fancy bookmarkletsApril 1, 2008 at 2:47 pm #46634EdwinMemberApril 1, 2008 at 3:17 pm #46636
Oh yeah, of course I forgot to mention:
Firefox, Internet Explorer 6 and Internet Explorer 7 for testing purpose,
Firebug add-on (javscript & ajax debug) and web developper add-on for firefox (mostly to skin my forum).April 1, 2008 at 3:19 pm #46637skullcrusherMember
PS, AI for design, Dreamweaver for coding and CuteFTP.
IE 6, 7, Safari, Firefox and Opera for testing.
Im trying to find an alternative to DW, something free and nice. Any sugestions? 8-)April 1, 2008 at 3:24 pm #46643
Well, I’m using Notepad++ myself, wich is free, light, and good.
I’m sure there is some people that don’t like it, but it’s pretty much like Notepad, but with syntax coloration. And just in case you wonder, no you don’t have any contextual menu like in Dreamweaver (like you press tab and the rest of the code fill-in), it’s all about you typing it :pApril 1, 2008 at 7:27 pm #46658jayzon277Member
– Firefox (with Add-Ons of course), Safari & Opera
– IE NetRenderer
– any PC available for further IE checking ;-)April 1, 2008 at 9:29 pm #46667Chris CoyierKeymaster
I go over most of the software I use in this screencast:
But in short, Adobe CS3 and Coda. I am on a Mac, and really like using TextMate when I can, so I’ve been thinking about switching over full-time to ExpanDrive, which mounts FTP connections like they are drives and you can work straight off them. I really like it, it’s just been a little buggy and hanging up the Finder and other applications sometimes. I think I’ll wait for the next point release.April 1, 2008 at 11:37 pm #46670TowersMember
When I used Windows I coded in Programmer’s Notepad, due to it being lightweight. It’s pretty similar to Notepad++, I think. Design was done in CS2 (that’s what was out at the time) and I usually just used Windows Explorer for FTP, though I did have SmartFTP on hand for anything it couldn’t handle.
Now, though, I use a Mac, and am proud to use Coda and Transmit for coding and FTP, respectively. I tend to no longer use Photoshop unless I need to make some kind of tiny background image, which hasn’t happened in a while. If you look at my blog (which is very likely not the most semantic thing on Earth) you’ll see that I am kind of a minimalist and don’t really care about fanciness.April 1, 2008 at 11:39 pm #46671
Yeah, my host was offering a kinda similar offer (web-storage right on your PC) but it was lagging a bit (after all, the data aren’t physically on the drive and need to be downloaded). But even tough it was slow, I was liking it because you don’t have to Open your FTP, upload, refresh page, test, repeat until done. You just modifiy, save, test.April 2, 2008 at 3:56 am #46691welshstewMember
PSPad for my code mostly, although I also have CS3 lying around.April 2, 2008 at 11:39 am #46731MavericksParticipant
My main tools are Notepad++, Firefox Addons: Fireftp, Firebug and Web Developer Toolbar. For quick picture edits SnagIT and for major edits or making new images Photoshop CS3. My career has been on Windows. I may have never used a Mac for anything. I’m deprived.April 2, 2008 at 2:58 pm #46734moonlordMember
e – texteditor, Webmaster’s Toolkit, firefox, safari, IE, FileZilla Client, Photoshop CS3April 3, 2008 at 6:48 am #46748
