A brand-new Power Macintosh 5400/180 that I bought cheap because (a) I didn't want to have to deal with platform migration, but (b) I didn't have confidence that Apple would still be here in a year or two, hence did not want to make large hardware investments.
The U.C. Berkeley network, an amazingly reliable and un-congested place
The Econometric Laboratory's .econ subnet, which has worked flawlessly since I finally figured out how to plug in the ethernet cable.

Webstar from Quarterdeck. It has never crashed.
Pagemill from Adobe. Now if only it would only let me use comments to consistently tell it what is .html that it doesn't understand and shouldn't monkey with--instead it decides anew what is "Raw HTML" style each time it is opened, and it usually gets it wrong...
