TiddlyWiki is a wonderful application to keep track of all kind of information, ideas, todo's etc. It's one I use daily, since many years, as well in my professional life as in my private life.

There are a few things that make TiddlyWiki unique from my perspective.

To begin with, it's about the format: 1 (one!) file containing html and javascript that just extends itself. No complex setups, no dependencies, extremely straightforward. Granted nowadays it needs a little webextension to be complete: timimi. The one-file concept implies you can use or transfer the wiki just as one file to whatever device you want.

Then it has a flexible set of tags that can be applied to each "tiddler", which is the name for the unit of information in tiddlywiki. "tiddler" can refer each other, can include each other, can have custom-fields, you name it. Sounds complex and overwhelming at first sight, but actually once you have the hang of it after a couple of days use, this is really extremely powerful. Obviously search capabilities are included as well.

Finally, it also has extreme configurability options so you can tune appearance and behaviour completely to your own taste.

But I tend to run it pretty much run-of-the-mill and it serves me extremely well. In my professional life I start even to be associated with my tiddlywiki now storing years of experience.

Ah, one more thing, my development of cb_thunderlink is very much driven by it's use within my wiki's (connecting "tiddlers" of knowledge with the associated emails).
