Automated software test tool junkie (currently TestComplete, Jira, Atlassian but expanding) on primarily Java apps to enhance exploratory testing.
Copying Production Data to a QA Environment
From a philosophical standpoint, I agree completely. Testing, questioning, and checking should be performed as early in the process as possible. However, I have been often surprised at the ability of users to create ingenious data scenarios. Having that environment available at the customer site as a final pre-deployment check has uncovered some issues that we were able to resolve prior to "going live".
