DragThing

I know I'm posting this early in the voting, but I'm surprised James Thomson's venerable and dependable DragThing isn't getting more votes. I do use Quicksilver on occasion, but I've been a loyal DragThing user for years. Its customizable tabs keep it out of the way when not in use, and I've got every app, doc, URL, and script I use on a regular basis tucked into its drawers (of course, I still yearn for OS 9's handy Pop-Up Windows). Works like a charm and always has.

I used to use DragThing back in OS 9. With the Dock in OS X I think I installed DragThing, but found myself using it less and less. These days Quicksilver covers every use and more that I used DragThing for back in the day. QS takes up less space and keeps my hands on the keyboard.

With regard to "keeping [one's] hands on the keyboard," I actually find DragThing to be quite good for this - I have keyboard shortcuts set up for almost all my apps, even the less-frequently-used ones. Easy to set up, and completely customizable. Just about any app is a control-option-[letter] away. Faster even than command-tab for switching between applications that are already running.

I selected "Quicksilver" in the poll, since that's what I use most. But I also have DragThing. I was using DragThing well before I tried Quicksilver, and still use it for some things. But I have to admit that I use QS as a launcher much more than DT, although I really like DT's process dock to show me what's running, what's hidden, etc.
