I've been using Awesome for a long time (other tiling WM beforehand as
well) and stuck with it. I does what I need it to do.

If you refer, like I do, a keyboard driven environment then I'd
suggest you look for other programs which don't require you to use a
mouse (or minimise its usage at the very least) and therefore increase
your productivity. I use rxvt-unicode with Perl extensions (i.e. tabs)
as my terminal and Luakit as my browser, not to mention Mutt and other
command line tools.
