Tools You’ll Use: Frank Taylor, Senior Front End Developer at Tahzoo

Mar 13, 2015

Article ImageThe right tools are an integral part of getting any job done. In the world of digital content tools are plentiful, so finding the right one for you can be tricky. That's why we ask the experts what tools they use to get their jobs done. 

What are your three favorite work-related apps?

Sublime Text 2

"It's a lean and highly flexible text-editor that lets a user code in any of 30 languages right out of the box. It's got a nice interface that's easy to use, works great on Mac or PC, and has tons of features that help me code faster."

Firefox Developer Edition

"Firefox DE is the first web browser that was made specifically for web developers. It includes a full-fledged Web IDE and Valence, for debugging in other browsers. I can build full-on web applications in a web browser! Firefox makes it very easy for me to debug and test how a web application is working."

Adobe Fireworks

"Adobe Fireworks is the image editor that isn't Illustrator or PhotoShop. Because it was an image editor that was made specifically for web graphics, it can handle bitmap and vector graphics equally well.  Despite being the best image editor for the web, Adobe has decided to stop supporting it, so there's no creative cloud version. It's a shame, because using Photoshop to design a website is like using a semi-truck as a commuter car. "

What's your favorite non-work-related app?

"Rabbit is a web-based video and chat tool. No downloads at all, and works in Chrome and Firefox. What makes it awesome is that I can ‘rabbit cast' video and audio from Netflix, Hulu, Pandora, and YouTube, so I can create a chat during which we all watch the same movie or tv show."
