Default What's your favorite launcher?

A quick poll for S5 owners, rooted or otherwise:
I'm not satisfied with the launcher. If you've replaced it, what did you install and why do you like it over other launchers?

Terrain or MIUI. Terrain is very interesting, you can search the Web and the phone and it has Google Now card like feature, but you can choose which cards you want.

Nova Launcher without a doubt, very stable, smooth and customizable launcher, you can have the looks of Touchwiz and the speed of AOSP with this launcher.

im using Nova Launcher at the moment, it's very fast and customizable, you can also go with the stock google now launcher which is also very fast.

I tested quite a number of launchers and these are my findings in order of preference:
Nova Prime (both phone and tablet) - Fantastic - won't use any other third party launcher ever again
Apex launcher (similar to Nova) - A very close second to Nova
Aviate launcher - It was a bit buggy and somehow did not do it for me the way Nova did
Action launcher - I really wanted to like this, bit to me it was just a big hype
Buzz launcher - Had nothing to offer that could better Nova

Apex Launcher for sure, very small, it uses not much RAM and has a lot of features
