Here is a list of my recommended development tools. Most of them are free! I use a combination of these applications for HTML, CSS, Javascript and database development. They also come in handy for various video editing projects as well.

The open-source, free, standards compliant web browser

Web Developer (Firefox Plugin)
The Web Developer plugin by Chris Pederick is a must have addition to Firefox for CSS, Javascript and HTML development.

Firebug (Firefox Plugin)
Firebug integrates with Firefox and adds a number of web development tools. It lets you edit, debug, and monitor CSS, HTML, and JavaScript live in any web page.

Notepad++ is a free text and source code editor and Notepad replacement that supports several languages.

The Gimp
The free, open source image manipulation program with capabilities similar to Photoshop and Paintshop Pro.

A free, open source office suite that for most people is a far better and cheaper option than Microsoft Office. OpenOffice Draw is free alternative to expensive products such as CorelDraw.

Oracle SQL Developer
Oracle SQL Developer is a free and fully supported graphical tool for database development. With SQL Developer, you can browse database objects, run SQL statements and SQL scripts, and edit and debug PL/SQL statements.
