Figma is an oft-mentioned web development tool that lets you collaborate on design.

Browser Developer Tools

Without a web browser, there is no web development. Most modern browsers include specific development tools to help you analyze backend code, which you can then take back into your project. Here are some of the most popular.

Chrome Developer Tools

Most of the chromium-based browsers have the same set of DevTools with similar shortcuts.
The most loved feature of Chrome's Dev tools is generating Google Lighthouse reports directly from your chrome browser

Chromium is an open-source codebase for a web browser, principally developed and maintained by Google.

Now, all the capabilities of Firebug are present in current the Firefox Developer Tools.
