Chat for Google
Chat for Google is a very neat tool that allows me to stay in Google Chat, even when I don't have Gmail open. This is good, because I don't use Gmail as my primary mail environment -- I use Outlook and Exchange.
How often used: Daily, all through the work day.
Live without it factor: This one is absolutely mission-critical, because I use it to keep in touch with my CBSi producers and editors. I probably chat with them about one project or another 10 or more times a day.
