Best UI mods?

UI and Macro
Returning player (2006). I remember a sticky with UI's. I also remember using Titan. What's one of the best UI's? I am not a minimilist, and prefer a decked out all out UI. Any thoughts?
Define "best".

Best : 1) Stable; 2) Well designed; 3) Easy to maintain/upgrade.

I know they switch up the windows in terms of design. I like something crisp/clean and informative. The stock UI is very basic. It's a Volvo (reliable, safe, minimalist). I prefer a BMW (reliable, safe, cool). That's not an apt analogy, but I hope you get the point :).
Thanks, i was looking for ui's on the googlenet and was just about to ask what are some of the better sites.

I forget, but aren't there some good compliation UI's (that is: grouping of the better mods out there into one complete package)?

Sorry for the noob'ish questions. I played consistently from opening until about early 2007 and haven't been on since. Actually chomping at the bit for Blizzard to restore a level 60 mage I had (among a few others).

My point is that what you're asking is subjective. For example, my raid frame addon of choice (Aptechka) meets all those above criteria, yet it's probably one of the least-used raid addons out there and I think you'd be hard-pressed to find many people willing to say they're the "best". I think Bartender is the "best action bar addon", but you might think it's Dominos, or Macaroon, or whatever. It's a bit like asking someone "what's the best colour?".

Yep:

If you want a ui replacement that is popular and updated for Cata, look at any of these:
- TukUI www.tukui.org
- ElvUI (edit of Tuk) http://www.wowinterface.com/downloads/info17749-ElvUI.html
- LUI www.wow-lui.com

You can also find user-made UI compilations (sorted by date) with screenshots here:

If you want to make your own UI, you can search Curse or WoWInterface for recently updated addons in each category and read the user comments.
I would say LUI.. The only reason I don't use it is because I'm so used to mine. ;)
I've had experience with xperl. It's not the most user friendly, but it gets the job done and it's safe.
i'm a fan of elvui recently, so far no issues though i had to write several profiles for tank, melee, range so on. it tries to do it stock but its basic setup takes some of my action bars, which i want and need for keybinding, but they can be moved so i am good
read the dates people.. the thread is almost 2 years old, pretty sure the op doesnt care anymore and has either made a choice or quit the game again.
technically it would just be me since the person above me was the one to rez the dead thread
I found I am quite fond of ELVUI, a lot of good in it. I dont like Tukui to well, i gues since i cant customize how i want things. I got out of bartender and xperl since ELVUI did everything i needed and more.
If you want to find groups or raids use oquque. I just learned about this thing today and I have already found 3 groups for the celestial fights.

The other ones that I use so far are DBM and gatherer. Still looking for a good raid frame.
you're going to want to build one yourself to suit your needs.
there are a lot of premade UIs that you can just download and play with. some that install like addons, and some that require you to do a little bit of file renaming.

here is a good site for inspiration. : http://www.wowuigallery.com/

premades are good they're convenient, but not always the best fit for everyone. i almost alway find myself toying with a premade in some way.
