The new UI. Looks much like the old UI. But whateva.
The reason you see 5 of my unit frame is because I'm targeting and focusing myself. From left to right I have my personal unit frame, my target, my target's target, my focus's target, and my focus. The party/raid frames appear in the upper left, and boss timers start at the top and then the critical timers move to the bottom in between the target of target and focus's target frames.
Aperture - the mod that enables the creation of the "black strip" or "dead space" seen at the bottom of my screen.
Bartender4 - action bar modification, now with Bongos-like "mouse-over keybinding" functionality.
Buffalo - buff/debuff display modification.
Clique - fairly user-friendly mod that allows assignment of spell casting in a mouse-over click-to-cast manner; fairly common amongst healers. I use it solely for Flash of Light and Holy Light - I assigned Flash to shift + left click, Holy Light to shift + right click for ease of healing.
ClosetGnome - alternative to ItemRack and Outfitter. I'm used to it after using it for several months.
CowTip - tooltip modification. CowTip is one of the most comprehensive tooltip mods out there, I've gotten so used to being able to mouse-over a target and have it display who the target is targetting. I can't arena without it.
Deadly Boss Mods - commonly used boss ability notification mod.
OmniCC - displays the numerical value for ability cooldowns on their action bar icon. Knowing that I've got 2 seconds until I can Crusader Strike is a good thing, so I don't waste this next global cooldown on something stupid like a heal (har har).
oRA2 - raid mod for main tank/main assist display.
Parrot - replacement for Scrolling Combat Text. Still trying it on for size, so far I've found it a positive experience.
Prat 3.0 - chat box mod, allows for mouse-wheel scrolling in chat and very customizable chat display.
Proximo - arena mod, nearly essential for arena play.
Quartz - cast bar/swing timer display, complete with latency estimation.
simpleMiniMap - allows for customization and moving of the minimap.
X-Perl Unit Frames - fairly common unit frame mod.
EDIT: Added a short description of functionality next to each mod, because I'm sure there are people out there wondering what each does.
