    Currently I'm using GO Launcher after using ADW/LPP each for a long time across various ROMs.

    GO Launcher has been great for me.

    Pros:
    Frequent updates
    No force closes(for my device)
    Great app drawer with recent apps, folders and a task manager tab!(best app drawer)
    Smooth UI, not any lag issues
    FREE!! No paid version

    Cons:
    Lack of themes. It is still a fairly new launcher
    Custom dockbar background does not load for a while after boot
    Only 2 widgets , contacts and task manager

    great overall launcher

    So whats your experiences?

    I'm pretty happy with Zeam. Pretty lightweight.

    I switch around a bit but am loving Opne Home 6 right now. Wish SPD Shell worked, it is sweet.

    My vote would go for Open Home 6 too, but I'm rocking SkyRaider 4.0 and love Sense all over again.

    I picked ADW from the list, however I'm running the EX version and loving it. I switch up between that and Launcher Pro Plus.

    Using LauncherPro Plus as of late. Seems to be running the smoothest with the least amount of redraws on my phone.

    I've used ADW EX and GO Launcher EX, both had pretty bad redraws for me :/

    I'm always trying new launchers though, so I'm not going to vote as of yet. I haven't heard of this Zeam / Open Home 6 though... may try those.

    So let's add in a little description to our posts about why we think the launchers are the best :)

    I hadn't heard of several that you guys mentioned but I looked them up and downloaded all of them to test out dancedroid

    I'm using golauncher ex right now,also using the keyboard too. It's customizable you can set your own pic or choose their theme ones as well. It gets lots of updates and great support. Oh yeah it's free to.

    I use Tag Home and I love it... You can create categories for your apps and easily switch between them... It makes for a much cleaner drawer and since you can weight apps, you can have the ones you use most at the top

    Zeam here too...small light and fast. I've been using it on everything for a while now...it's hard to move away from something that works. Every once in a while it does complain, but I don't have stuff locked in memory either. It's always a trade off for how you use things.

    Is there any reason why zeam needs to read contact data? I can see why in launcher pro because of the widgets. Other than that this launcher is less than 400k!
