BreezingForms
I was a big fan of Facile Forms, and was very happy to see it carried on in this extension.

In previous Breezing Forms incarnations, I always used the standard Facile Forms form-building mode, because "Easy Mode" to me made things _more_ fiddly, frustrating, and took three times as long.

With the release of the latest version, Trinity, this has changed. The new mode "Quick Mode" is exactly that - fast, and sleek. Nine times out of ten I just need to whip up a basic, nice-looking form, and the new Quick Mode does that with minimal fuss. Love it, love it, love it.

The forum and documentation are okay, although I'd love a full PDF manual. Thank you for carrying on Facile Forms and continuing to build on it to make better and brighter things! :)

Filtered News
Regularly updated and so much nicer to look at than the default ways of displaying latest content items in Joomla. It and its cousin Global News are two of my favourite content items components for Joomla :)

Phoca Gallery
I have been searching for an image gallery managing solution for Joomla for over a year, and continually had to compromise with clunky code, bad UI, or just not the exact features I wanted.

You can add images to the Phoca folder via FTP, add them to the catagories quickly via the component, have auto-thumbnails, image descriptions, AND (important!) your users can download the images easily (a problem that few developers seemed to care about). With the other Phoca modules this is a powerful gallery tool indeed.

Phoca is clean, neat and well-documented. I will be implementing it on the not-for-profit sites I help maintain, and making a personal donation when I can afford it, because work like this really deserves recognition. Thank you for developing such a worthwhile extension!
