A few times I’ve come across this site Vranx, most recently when looking for a replacement for Elkano Buffbars (I’m speculating it’s causing this horrible drop to like 5 FPS I get in a few situations like Razorscale and Mimiron).
What I like is it has a categorisation of addons and set of recommendations within each.
You can save a lot of time by starting your search at Vranx, rather than google/curse/wowinterface. It’ll give you a short-list.
3.2: it includes whether addons have been updated for 3.2
Unit frames: Shadowed, Pitbull 4 and Caellian
Whilst there, I found Shadowed, a very interesting unitframes which I’m testing now. Easy-to-use configuration, which is really important when you’re switching since it can be time-consuming. (Have you seen how crazy-hard Pitbull 4 is to set up? Apparently it’s easier than 3 was, but man it’s massive. I installed and spent a few minutes configuring before giving up; I didn’t want to invest time learning how to setup unitframes.)
Shadowed doesn’t look as polished out-of-the-box as my current, beautiful, oUF Caellian does, but… Caellian is missing arena frames and focus-target debuffs. I could fix those problems with other addons, but I thought I might see if I can find an all-in-one which also replaces Elkano, and Shadowed does so far! It’s debuff/buff filtering system is excellent.
I’ll report back after more testing.
