In fact, as of today (May 1, 2010 at 15:40 UTC) there are 809 results for Visual Studio 2010 in the Visual Studio Gallery. If you filter this list to show just the free items, there are still 251 extensions available. Given that number (and it is currently increasing weekly) it can be difficult to find extensions that are useful.

Here is the list of extensions that I currently have installed and find useful:

Those are some nice plugins. I really like the word wrap and auto-indent. Wrapping long lines of code make the code look messy.

Maybe you should check Visual & Installer extension:
http://visualstudiogallery.msdn.microsoft.com/5e57fe9a-ae5d-4740-a1c3-7a8e278e105b?SRC=Home

- extension for working with NSIS and Inno Setup installers directly in Visual Studio.

Go to definition is my favourite!
I've recently found also Snip2Code, for the management of my snippets. Seems interesting.

Bye!
