For nice colors:

I’d also recommend using ColorMania utility to pick, mix, identify colors. It`s free and lite and really handy, take a look:

The main two:

  • The browser (chrome and chrome dev tools)
  • Jetbrains products for IDE’s

Jetbrains IDE’s are pretty powerful, and if you learn the keyboard shortcuts and the refactoring tools you can whiz around that thing super quick.

Aside from that and technology specific things, Postman and Charles proxy come in handy from time to time for making and intercepting requests respectively.

  • Chrome devtools - impossible to live without it
