I tend to use Photoshop, Dreamweaver and XCode. I haven't bothered to set up a deadicated IDE for any of the languages because XCode works so darned well and I have gotten used to it. It seems as though I'll have to get Eclipse set up again for a class though. Ughh... I hate working with the setup of the thing but once its set up its pretty good.

I use Fireworks, Dreamweaver, and notepad. Im not really great with graphics so I just use Fireworks for basic images and menus. I then send everything over to Dreamweaver which is connected to my site. Allowed me to edit in real time. If I am just editing a small page or just a small amount of code I will pop out notepad for it is lighter on resources and faster to launch. I am still sort of new to making a layout in Fireworks and then sending it to Dreamweaver.

I always use notepad. Originally, I would edit html with notepad all the time, and after doing that for a while, I've basically memorized all the html tags, CSS options, and all that good stuff. I am learning how to use everything about Dreamweaver in a class (which I don't exactly enjoy), but I still find notepad the easiest method. The only useful thing about Dreamweaver imo is that you can use the split code and design pane for fast updating and preview, but other than that, notepad just seems more worth the price. Even so, if I had Dreamweaver and I could pick between the 2, I'd just use notepad because Dreamweaver takes a while to load up :shifty:

I use all the ones you mentioned XD. I'd have to say I use VS the most though since I design alot of windows apps for my workplace to keep everything in order. I'll go with eclipse second for my minecraft plugin coding too
