OK I've seen a few similar posts, but most seem to revolve around the IDE.
Web development doesn't end there so what else do you use?

I develop on Windows and deploy to Linux.

PHP:
IDE -> Netbeans 6.8
Text Editor -> Notepad++

Database:
Design/Development -> MySQL Workbench
Management -> Navicat

FTP -> Filezilla

Webserver -> XAMPP

Terminal (remote access) -> Bitvise Tunnelier (includes SFTP and tunneling)

SVN -> TortoiseSVN

Debugging -> Firebug (Firefox plugin)

Graphics:
Create/Edit -> Fireworks
Colour Picker -> ColorZilla (Firefox Plugin)
Colour Schemes -> Color Scheme Designer

Video Conversion -> Handbrake



No need to follow my format but what are your favourite and commonly used tools or what can't you live without?

I work in Windows, all code resides in Linux.

PHP:
IDE -> Netbeans 6.8
Text Editor -> Notepad or Editplus, but lately I've just been sticking to Netbeans

Database:
Design/Development/Management -> SQLYog

(S)FTP -> WinSCP

Webserver -> (remote) Apache or nginx (my preference)

Terminal (remote access) -> Putty

Code Versioning -> (remote) SVN via CLI

Debugging -> Firefox Console or Chrome Console

If you ever feel limited by phpmyadmin, you ought to check out one of the MySQL interfaces available. I personally liked phpmyadmin when I first found it, and was frustrated after working with it for a couple of years. Finding SQLYog (Community Edition is great) was the best thing that's happened for me regarding MySQL :-)

Another option I came across the other day is 'Chive'.
It looks really good and it's actually coded in Yii!

VIM for any coding.
MySQL CLI Shell/Postgres Shell for anything database related.
cli scp/ssh/rsync
git

Good point, It's the tiny little utilities that save you that extra bit of time that are often the ones that people don't know about.

For instance when I was helping a windows server admin who was doing some remote work on an ubuntu server install I noticed that he was fully typing out pathnames when changing directories.

He just didn't know that you could hit tab in bash to auto-complete, needless to say he spends a lot less time typing now :)
