    That's cool, it's funny how some people have been using these sites for years, but most of them (7) I'm seeing for the first time. Thanks

    This is true that a lot of people have used Notepad or something similar to create websites and they continue to do so.

    As we evolve as designers, efficiency is key. Having tools to help with efficiency and to automate some tasks that took a long time in the past is a good choice in my opinion.

    The title "9 Free Tools That All Web Designers Should Have" is simply a catch line to get your attention. As you said, people have been fine without these tools but for those who choose to use them, they will be fine with them.

    About : Xenu Link Checker . I think if you sign up on Google Webmaster, you have there a better tool to check broken links for your site.

    I use Webmaster Tools and it does provide good data. The one drawback is it is never up to date. Sometimes it is days or even a week behind. Plus I believe it only shows the pages that are indexed by Google.

    The thing with Xenu is that it is instant. You can get real time data whenever you choose for your entire site.

    These are the best^^^

    @OP: These tools are very handy. I am sure I will be using these. There were some I haven't heard of, but I am glad I have now.
