I've been watching too much G4Tech TV recently, specifically "Call For Help". While maybe the context of the show is geared towards computer-newbies, they do seem to cover a wide range of stuff.
A segment of the show includes a "download of the day". A few days ago they featured PS Hot Launch, a lightweight tool quick-launch toolbar for the applications that you use frequently. What makes it unique is that you can group them together and assign hotkeys to the group. You can configure to show a quick-launch menu for the hot-key or to launch all applications in a group -- perfect if you have tasks where you need an IDE, command-line, nunit, and browser!
