Well, here's some of my daily extension loads (not that I really think anyone gives a hoot on this forum what anybody does):
The choices are obvious when you consider I tend to be using dsl as a desktop system lately as opposed to console jockeying (reflecting my work). So rather than boot Fedora or something huge ....
scite.uci - always loaded. Beaver is absolutely *unusable* for coding anything bigger than a few lines and I prefer a gui editor.
gtk2 extension - sometimes loaded to enable gtk2-dependent extensions.
gqview.uci and/or xnview.uci - managing and viewing camera pics
mplayer-1.0pre8.uci - handy for flv from YouTube etc etc
openoffice uci - when need to write a doc, pdf or xls file, or view a ppt, though I do wish this had better fonts available and was more recent.
compile.uci - usually use this for compiling these days (thanks Juanito).
xine.uci looks very promising indeed and have started using that also. Watched a dvd on it last night (thanks Jason).
gnupg extension - for verifying gpg signatures on downloaded sources.
prozilla.dsl - always loaded - for downloading from the commandline, can't be beat.
java uci - often loaded.
gnuutils.dsl/unc - only when I have to load it.
man.uci - altered one, which I keep forgetting to post.
imagemagick uci - sometimes. I use the mogrify and convert tools.
tkdvd.dsl/unc - occassionally
Various other extensions occassionally also eg frostwire (which seems to have stopped doing the 100% cpu thing all of the time for some reason), opera uci(2), newer firefox uci, python uci, others I'll remember later.
Bittorrent doesn't work on my connection or I'd be running azureus or one of the other bt clients.
In the base system I quite often use xmms for listening to mp3s etc.
