Default What software do you currently use?

Hey, I'm new here so bare with me. I'm wondering which software everyone here uses.

I personally use:
  • Firefox
  • CCleaner
  • CleanUp!
  • iTunes
  • AdAware
  • SpyBot
  • Trillian
  • Unlocker
  • Foxit Reader
  • AusLogics Disk Defrag
  • AntiVir

P.S. List what extensions you use with Firefox if you even use Firefox.
