I realized that I had largely started replacing some of the built in sense apps/widgets (not counting FM tuner). The calendar has been replaced by Agenda Widget. The weather/clock widget has been replaced by Beautifulwidgets. The SMS application has been replaced by Handcent. The playback widget has been replaced by Tunewiki. This leaves three trademark things from sense that I find impressive and largely irreplaceable: The people app is a pretty good contacts aggregator, I use it when I want to call or send a message to someone on my contacts list since it gives me better overview compared to Handcents conversation layout or the "phone" key. The news widget is pretty great when you link the front view to a decent news source and load up some more RSS feeds in the internal list. Can't find any news widget that can really compete with it. The Friend stream app(not widget) - it seems to be better at organizing the updates compared to the built in facebook app, besides, I like the layout. I've never used stock, email, footprint or any of the other non-mentioned applications. I have kept the built-in browser, but mostly because I felt no need to replace it, since it did it's job well - I do not see it as notably superior or inferior to the alternatives out there. Now this isn't meant to be an attack on HTC as much as an admission that there are some notable developers out there who have made some great applications, and I was wondering which of the supplied applications you have replaced and which ones you have not - and why.
