Please advise the best launcher for WFS, considering battery consumption. I use this ROM: [ROM] EQDKP Sense 3.5 - GB2.3.5 idogx base - OC [m1ndh4x8r mod] and GoLauncher, but battery life is realy short (16 hours). Thanks.

The only reason your battery life is short is because of the battery in the Wildfire S....it's smaller than it's predecessor!!!
My friends wildfire lasts easily up to a day but my wildfire S is in the same condition as yours....So your battery pretty much ok in terms of its capacity

ADW Ex Launcher is truly the best.

Not if you want speed, or light battery consumption.
I have used Go launcher and i keep coming back to LauncherPro because its so swift and fast.

I second the notion of using Zeam. I like it because it's light and does the job.

I tried GO Launcher, ADW Launcher and Launcher Pro and imho the best is Launcher Pro, it's faster and better looking.

The issue with Launcher Pro is that it hasn't been updated in over a year, so it's not really worth paying for. ADW Ex is more or less the same (the last update was a sham to give the illusion the app was still being actively developed during the android market promo in december), which is a shame. ADW Ex And LPro are about the same in the performance department, but ADW Ex does offer a lot more features such as a opaque app drawer. I never really liked the lack of padding the dock icons receive in ADW Ex (so I hide it), but it instead gives you a great amount of control over how the desktop icons are displayed.

The thing that really irks me about Go Launcher (other than the privacy scandals) is that you're always left with a gap for the desktop indicator, even if you hide it. So if you use a widget that takes up the whole screen, you're still left with an unsightly gap at the top.
