    This is a short-list of plugins for WP 3.9 which I am considering to use.
    Please indicate which you prefer and if you have any other additions or must haves, please include in your post.
    Which have you found to be resource hogs?
    Have you had any experience of conflicting plugins?
    etc...etc....

    Please discuss and outline which you have found to be the best. Thanks for your help.
