I only use Zeam Launcher. I've rooted the device as well, so I renamed all the bloatware to .bak files, but Zeam is still very nice if you're unrooted or don't want to flash another ROM. It's so light weight and has some pretty standard features, as well as gestures for things like opening the app drawer with an up-swipe on the home screen. Or a down-swipe on the home screen to open notifications. Dock is customizable as well, so it can be transparent or gradient or whatever.
Droid 3 XT862 back on Verizon now, using custom build.prop. Can't seem to get ICS to flash to my Safe system, ugh!!!
