Thanks for the info :) Re: w3schools I use their reference section as a quick way to grab some commonly used solutions for basic html (5), css, js, php, sql, etc. I have (infrequently) seen an out of date snippet, too. I am very fond of using MDN and use it as my homepage on DASH (kapeli) a docset library for mac. I have also helped out with documentation on MDN and find it an invaluable resource. Could not live without it either. That being said, sometimes MDN takes longer to sift through than w3schools and is missing some examples (being worked on by open source community).

Those are just 2 reasons why I'm a proponent of using multiple selected tools for complete support. For example: the tools I use in Chrome may not be what I'm using in one project or the tools I use in VB may have something else built in that I use instead in another project. As with all software development it always depends on what, when, where, how, why and personal preference.

I'm curious: When you switch machines (if you do) doesn't it drive you batty remembering everything you need to look up? Namaste!

Switching between 4 machines (including virtuals) it certainly is annoying to have to remember everything. However, setting up all the machines and browsers to keep in sync is also annoying, especially since most of them can't go more than 6 months without being wiped and reinstalled.
