It really boils down to your goals and skill-set. Generally for most seasoned web designers it breaks down in order:
A. Static Design Tools:
3. Keynotes (Yes really)
B. Dynamic Design Tools
1. Coda 2 (has builtin preview browser)
2. Sketching on paper + hand coding CSS (think designing in browser) + your choice of editor without a preview. (Sublime Text popular pure editor, and of course TextMate) + Browser of choice, most go Webkit based from an OS X perspective.
3. Espresso 2 (has builtin preview browser)
4. BBEdit (has builtin preview browser)
Of course this is not limited to the options above, I'm sure there will be a few special snowflake options but those would be more developer or amateur options. Again if you're going for the most popular and supported tools amongst web designers, there you have it.

Looks these over. These are pretty popular. But many others available with a simple search of the web. You will have to make the decision as to which will work best for you.

On the professional side:
Komodo - multi-language IDE, excellent for LAMP developers. Has full debugging tools, CVS awareness, code intelligence, Retina support and group development functions. I use it at work very day, the latest version 8.0 is excellent and includes a mini-map (high level view of your code useful when editing and moving things around) and a fantastic interface. Simple means to create new projects and edit properties of those products, i.e. to match your sandbox docroot setup if also using MAMP PRO for local development.
