Top 10 Free Web Application Development Tools




I use all but one of the tools in this list for web application development. They help streamline most of my work as a web developer. This is PC based…so I’m not sure which will work on the Mac.

  1. jEdit
  2. Web Developer Tool Bar for FireFox
  3. FileZilla
  4. MySQL
  5. Gimp – read our article on Gimp Logo Design
  6. CodeIgniter
  7. Project Pier
  8. Subversion
  9. Open Office
  10. IE Tester

I’ve never really used subversion. I will try to explore it in the future.

I’ve built applications with Codignitor and it’s really easy to work with. The Web Developers tools bar is practically an extension of me, and the same for jEdit and FileZilla.

Use any of these tools? Please tell us about it.
