Last year I created a page to list all the Front End Developer tools that I’ve come across as a Front End Developer.

If you head over to www.frontendwebtools.com you can see the big list.
Everyone hates those silly captcha forms. The ones you can barely read, have to refresh 100 times in order to get one you think you can read, only to fail yet again.
