How Do You Use MetaTrader 5?

First usable MetaTrader 5 beta came out back in October 2009, so it will be two years soon. Still almost no Forex brokers offer real accounts in MT5, nevertheless many traders use MetaTrader 5 platform, develop EAs and indicators and discuss it.

I use primarily for new Forex systems testing, as the MT5 Strategy Tester is much better than the one in MT4. Additionally I am very enthusiastic about MT5 and MQL5, expecting that it soon will become more popular than MT4 and MQL4.

So how do you use it? Do you trade MT5 demo accounts, why? Do you develop any Forex indicators or expert advisors for this platform?
