Top 3 - Favorite Development Tools

It was very quiet on my blog for the last months, but I would like to let you know what my Top 3 Development Tools are:
  1. ReSharper: This productivity add-in for Visual Studio is absolutely a "must have"!
    My experience is, if you work with it and use it's feature frequently you can't work without!
    I'm addicted to ReSharper!
  2. Notepad++: I banned the legacy notepad and since a few month I only use Notepad++.
    I love it's large syntax highlighting support for different languages, the code folding, auto indentation, numerous text functions, and a lot more.
  3. And last but not least, FireBug: This FireFox add-on helped me a lot during the development of my last web application. It has great feature to "edit, debug and monitor CSS, HTML and JavaScript live in any web page".
Of course, there are many other tools I use to increase my productivity, but I won't summarize all of them and their capabilities here. But I'd like to list some of them (in no special order): Launchy, ActivAID, ToDoList, ProcessExplorer (and all it's siblings), PL/SQL-Developer, Paint.NET, Tortoise/SVN, dotTrace, Reflector, AutoHotkey, ...

What are your prefered development tools?

My most precious tool is ... common sense!

Other than that, I completely agree with your choice.

Re# being the clear winner without which I would not accept a project.
