Display Suite

Provides some advanced layout and display options for content. "Display Suite is a module that takes over the rendering of entities."

Better Formats

The best part about this module is that each role can have a default text format.

Drupal 7 core allows for reordering the formats in the UI, thus picking a default too. However, there is no role based ordering, as there is with the Better Formats module.

Devel

Essential module for developers. Should be disabled in production environments.
