Various Web development tools
IETesterMany browsers allow multiple versions to be installed on the same machine, but this is not possible with Internet Explorer. Internet Explorer is tightly integrated with the Windows opererating system itself, which explains the problem. In fact, you could very well say that IE is part of the operating system.
Nevertheless, you might want to test out your Web projects on various versions of Internet Explorer. One solution is to use various Virtual Machines, each with their own IE version.
Another approach is to use IETester. It is a freeware Webbrowser that allows you to have the rendering and javascript engines of IE9, IE8, IE7, IE6 and IE5.5 on Windows 7, XP and Vista. It does not interfere with your current (officially installed) version of Internet Explorer.

See also below.

ZopeA free, Open Source(tm) web application platform used for building high-performance, dynamic web sites.
PythonPython is an interpreted, interactive, object-oriented programming language. It is often compared to Tcl, Perl, Scheme or Java.
Python combines remarkable power with very clear syntax. It has modules, classes, exceptions, very high level dynamic data types, and dynamic typing. There are interfaces to many system calls and libraries, as well as to various windowing systems (X11, Motif, Tk, Mac, MFC). New built-in modules are easily written in C or C++.
The Python implementation is portable: it runs on many brands of UNIX, on Windows, DOS, OS/2, Mac, Amiga, etc. Python is copyrighted but freely usable and distributable, even for commercial use.
RebolFree for non-commercial use. Very easy to use and elegant interpreted language useful for creating Web applications. Rebol supports object oriented programming. It includes 14 Internet protocols, like HTTP, FTP, CGI, SMTP, POP, etc.
Rebol runs on more than 20 platforms, which means that the scripts listed on the Rebol site will not only be able to run on Windows but will also run on Solaris, Irix, NetBSD, OpenBSD, BSDi, BeOS, Mac, AIX, HPUX, Amiga, Linux, etc.
Rebol/Command, (which is not free) provides additional features:
Direct database access to: Oracle 8 (Windows, Solaris Sparc, and Linux libc6 systems) MySQL 3, ODBC access (from Windows) to: Access, Excel, MS SQL Server, Oracle, MySQL.

ASP2PHPFree tool to convert Microsoft ASP Web scripts to PHP scripts.
 
Client-side Scripting Languages
Client-side scripts run inside the Webbrowser. Modern Webbrowsers such as Mozilla FireFox, Opera and Internet Explorer all support Javascript and Java.
JavaJava is a powerful object-oriented programming language derived from C++ but without much of the complexity of C++. With Java you can create small programs, so called 'Java Applets' which are embedded in a Web page (they run inside the Webbrowser). Use Java when you want to create applets, which run as a separate entity within the context of your Webpage.
JavascriptA scripting language supported by the majority of Webbrowsers. Javascript is not to be confused with Java. Use Javascript when you want your Webpages to be dynamic, and to respond to certain user-actions (mouse, keyboard, etc.).
