    I use Quick Settings. It doesn't put the option directly in the drop-down, but you can put a shortcut to a settings panel where you can change many different things, including wifi.

    Here's another vote for Quick Settings.

    On its home screen, you can turn not only WiFi off and on, but also bluetooth, GPS, and mobile data. You can set the ringer to vibrate or off, and set the volume. There's also data about available phone storage and battery remaining.

    Another option is the widgets in Beautiful Widgets. It's not free, but I like the time and temp and current weather on the homepage.

    There is alwso the regular power control widget that allows you to switch wifi on and off, and that comes stock with the browser weather running 2.1 or 2.2

    Flip open your keyboard and hit FN(yellow button) and V to toggle wifi on or off, I found it faster than any apps

    I use WI-FI switch, available on Google Market. It goes right where the old WIFI button was. Free download.
