I would like to introduce pretty new add-in for SSMS: SSMSBoost (

extends SQL Server management studio with these features:

- Script object located at cursor position directly from SQL Editor. Shortcut:[F2]
- Locate object: quickly find object located at cursor position in object explorer. Shortcut:[Ctrl-F2]
- copy column names from grid
- QuickConnection Switch drop-down on toolbar allows switching connection in SQLEditor between Servers
- Locate current database in ObjectExplorer
- Search for objects using wildcards
- Preferred connections management: "remember" frequently used server/databases, quickly swith between them
- Shortcuts editor - feature, that is missing in SSMS2008, but is coming in SSMS2012
- Define macros with existing commands
- Auto replacements
- Connection coloring - in more useful way
- Server aliases in quick connection switch combobox
- more features coming each month
- users can request new features - developers will implement everything, what is reasonable for rest of community and is possible to implement using native SSMS means

This add-in saves real time during work with databases with many objects or when you work in multiple-server environments
