If you aren’t developing in a Webkit-based browser (Chrome, Safari) you’re probably wasting a lot of time.
A font made up of symbols and glyphs useful for desktop or mobile web development. Symbolset gives you access to lots of commonly-used symbols which would normally be images, decreasing the page load time and number of requests needed to display your page.
A new free service from 37 Signals: xip.io is:
a magic domain name that provides wildcard DNS for any IP address.

Build isometric boxes and text in HTML and CSS. Inching towards the day when someone can build an X-Com port.
A great-looking update to the self-described “image editor for humans.” I’ve been using Acorn since version 1, and I spend more time with Acorn and less with Photoshop every week.
A nifty little JS bookmarklet that tells you what font is being used on the text you’re hovering over. No more digging through CSS files for this cowboy.
The icons are of varying quality, but it’s certainly a useful round to have in the chamber. Via Zeldman.
