Normally, everyone would say Photoshop, Flash, Dreamweaver, Eclipse or whatever general products. I’m supporting other new-age product since I really think that this is one of those that make magic happens without an interface that takes tens of days to understand and use.

Also I would love to vote a few others Aviary, Picnik, of course FlashEff, Wix (great zui interface) anything that is easy to use.

I have to also add a few votes for iLife and iWork 09.

With so many amazing tools available for web it is hard to pick just one that makes my workflow. Over all I would say it would be much more difficult without FireBug. Since the release of Safari 4 beta, I have made some changes in my workflow to using Safari Developer toolbar. The Safari toolbar allows for a few options that Firebug does not support such as JavaScript debugging for example. Along with these tools, one of the most useful tools I use on a daily basis is SixRevisons. Not to kiss ass, but there are many sites I visit everyday to see the new trends of the web. Sites like webdesignerwall, faveup, gotoandlearn, and bestwebgallery. I think really overall the best tool for me is:
