For years I used Xperl for healing. I use a grocery list of other mods for other things. Recently, I switched to Vuhdo and I love it. I liked the look of grid but I didn't like the set up. I found it too complicated at first, though this might have been because I've used X-perl for 4-5 years. I might try it again in Cata but Vuhdo is just too awesome at this point.
I'm not a healbot kinda guy. Our priest swears by it but I think I might have convinced her to try out Vuhdo instead.
For castbars I use Quartz, for unit frames, Pitbull and ArcHUD3 to watch my mana among other things.

I used Grid/Clique until 4.0 and loved them. I still do, but didn't want to go through the hassle of updating all the various modules because of the patch(es), so I got Vuhdo.
Vuhdo is very good, and as a Druid healer I must have some kind of addon to track the times on my hots. Vuhdo is also updated very, very quickly for patches and doesn't have a bunch of modules required.
I've heard good things about Healbot but haven't used it.
Basically, use whichever one you want. I think they all can do the same things but you're going to have to learn how to configure it to how you like it.
I've tried them all with the exception of the recently developed Grid2.
They're all similar and all do very close to identical things as long as you take the few minutes to learn their setups. Lately, I've personally switched to the new default UI with mouseover-target-focus-self macros and it's working perfectly fine.
What addons you use do NOT make you a better or worse healer. How you use the tools you have make you a better or worse healer. Who cares what addons anyone else uses, use what you feel comfortable using and what enables you to do the job you need to do.
