Software To Use In Developing Website?
What do you guys use to build/develop your website?

When I was on Windows I used Notepad++ and since moved to Mac I've been missing it greatly and now use Dreamweaver.

There's many different options available. If you're using for software let us know your situation and I'm sure we'll be able to recommend something that suits your needs.

We primarily use Dreamweaver

I use SBI! although they are more than a website builder. They work to help build the site from a business perspective. So it would include- brainstorming, keywords, how to organize your page for seo and visitors, newsletters and rss feeds, a helpful forum, how to monetize your site, and more.

It may be more than your looking for, but it's a great company. Check out my inspirational quotes website to see what a basic site looks like and how it functions.

We use Visual studio in conjunction with Umbraco CMS, and 960grid system for pretty much all our sites.

In the past I have used UltraEdit for PHP based stuff which I think is pretty good. Aptana is another one to look at that I think is probably going places.

We do everything by hand, as its the quickest best way to write clean code, haven't used Dreamweaver for about 10 years.

What you use depends on what kind of site you are developing, along with your knowledge and skills, there is not enough information in the original post to provide any useful response unfortunately.

I have for a number of years used 'Dreamweaver' but for the past 3 years have been using JOOMLA Content management system.

Which software is user-friendly?

I use Joomla CMS tool for developing my websites and i'm successful with Joomla. I believe Joomla is the best and more user friendly software to develop websites.

We use Ruby on Rails 3.0, Node.js, CSS, MySQL, MongoDB, and stuff like that. Do all our hosting on Heroku now. Incredible cloud hosting service it is.

Depends on how good your user skills are. I think Ruby on Rails 3.0 is one of the easier development frameworks to figure out but the big thing is that it's all written in Ruby and ruby is 100% object oriented. What that means is all the objects and classes are reusable and when you reuse them in your applications they tend to work in a reliable manner.
