I'm just setting up a new dev box now and there are always some things, like extensions and tools, I feel they are a must-have for Visual Studio 2010 devs. Some of these extensions like the Web Essentials have already made it to Visual Studio 11 (still in Beta), but I still wanted to share my preferences for my must have VS extensions:
  1. ReSharper
  2. NuGet Package Manager
  3. Productivity Power Tools
  4. Web Essentials
  5. Image Optimizer
  6. Javascript Parser

There is a cool Channel 9 vid where Mads Kristensen does a walkthrough of some of the goodies in his Web Essentials and the Image Optimizer. If you are in the web dev space, you should check it out: http://channel9.msdn.com/Shows/Visual-Studio-Toolbox/Visual-Studio-Toolbox-Web-Essentials-and-CSSCop
