Your tool recommendations: research & design documentation

Having recently moved back into a research and design management role, I'd like to ask the group for recommendations on how to easily manage design research and design documentation. 

To my knowledge there is no "one tool to rule them all." In the past I've typically cobbled together solutions from piece parts; e.g., Basecamp, Jira/Confluence, Lighthouse, etc. for requirements and design documentation; Pivotal Tracker or Jira for work item and issue tracking.

Anticipatory Gestures

Something interesting happened in usability testing yesterday. Without
belaboring the details of the interface (which I was not responsible
for), one of our users had anticipated a control being in one part of
the screen, so he moved the pointer there prior to the screen fully

He had good reason to. This particular site was divided into four
sections. Three of the four sections located the control in the lower
right corner. The fourth in the lower left.

Our participant noticed this immediately and pointed it out.

Google's New Design

By now, I’m sure we all must have noticed the new design that Google recently rolled out. I somehow feel that the left hand sidebar filters can be designed better.  Even the transition from more search tools to fewer search tools does not seem to be very smooth. Google has been experimenting with this sidebar for many months now. I wish if there was an option to “turn off” this new sidebar. Though I really like the way more filters are given in search categories such as Images, Books etc.  Especially the color and type search in images is absolutely fundu.

Traffic analysis tools?

I am looking for some traffic analysis systems/tools that should be
used in measuring usability. The main requirements are:

* standalone - no data can be send outside the company environment,

* wide spectrum of (easy readable) reporting: the-more-the-better.

Additionaly - some kind of support for interface-analysis (e.g.
possibility to compare metrics for two or three randomly displayed
versions of the same page) would be nice, as well as all these
candies like site overlay.

Any recommendations?
