I mostly do my own stuff. Applies to pretty many other things too I guess..
Largely because I want to, I dont need anything fancy or big and recently I have not been able to use stuff like PHP on my site (free github hosting (https://pages.github.com/) ftw, thanks lillecarl (http://emudevs.com/member.php/12-lillecarl)).
For maybe obvious reasons, if I need to use javascript I dont use plain javascript. (jquery (http://jquery.com/) ftw)
I dont really know/use any/many/about utilities or frameworks to use really. I have gone with the flow of making my own rather than looking for tools. Maybe thats a part reason for not using tools or ready made frameworks etc.
I also made a website for school final project and had a basic HTML course for it, though that was just for show .. you dont learn anything useful on a HTML course unless you dont know anything about it when going.

I code everything in notepad++ (http://notepad-plus-plus.org/) except C++ and C etc, those are on Visual Studio (http://www.visualstudio.com/en-us/downloads/download-visual-studio-vs.aspx), which I sometimes use to format bad HTML. Java on netbeans (https://netbeans.org/).

There is an exception for everything ofcourse. I have coded web app with java for example using Vaadin (https://vaadin.com/home) framework.

Something new I ran into within a year was SCSS and similar. Could use it on my own site(s) as well.
Im ..currently.. in process of recoding my site base to use Jekyll and could use SCSS .. hmm.. github uses Jekyll and that supports SCSS.

Usually i don't do web stuff, and most cases if i do i do some php things w/o any design or something (or if with design, it is copy/pasted from somewhere).
So basically i use only text editors like geany (http://www.geany.org/), gedit (https://wiki.gnome.org/Apps/Gedit) and it could be to use vi/vim (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vi).

Usually from scratch for me unless it's something completely out of my league, then I use something already started or made to learn from before wiping it out and starting my own take on my concepts/theories/ideas. I use Notepad++ generally, though I suppose the only thing I don't do from scratch would be my blog, using wordpress for that, too much to manage otherwise for my schedule.

From scratch, because i'm not doing much webstuff and every framework would just be a big overhead.
For HTML, PHP and other scripting stuff (e.g. LUA) i actually use Notepad (editor.exe), because it's so minimalistic. I always want much place and see as much code as possible, so even a toolbar is annoying. Ofcourse using another software would save much time for me, but i still don't like it. I even wrote the HTML and CSS part in my exams with Notepad instead of an pre installed HTML editor.

When i use a higher language like C++, i use Visual Studio. IMO it is by far the best IDE available.
