Tips:
Darren:

Notepad++. Notepad they way it should have been. One of the first things I install on a new machine. Excellent light weight editor.
Mike:

In the grand tradition of developers stealing borrowing from one other, I saw this site mentioned within a Planet Lotus blog post from Mark Roden: http://jsbeautifier.org/. It makes JavaScript code more readable by adding indents and line breaks.
Stuart:

Chrome with IBM Connections Files issue workaround. Great job, Sjaak!
