Replacement SQL2008 query analyzer tool

I would like to find a standalone query analyzer that will work well with SQL 2008,   I realize I can utilize the tools embedded in the Management Studio, but I miss the ability to have many instances of the query analyzer open at the same time so I can easily toggle between databases and different projects without issues.   It is not uncommon for me to have eight instances of Query Analyzer open at once with dozens of queries running in each.  Additionally I like the small footprint the standalone product provided which is not available using the Management Studio.   Has anyone found a good tool that has been developed to allow for the old school SQL 2000 style query analyzer?  

Thanks,
Mike

I know you can have multiple instances of Management Studio open and use sqlcmd to run sql scripts against a sql 2008 server there is also this:  http://www.albahari.com/queryexpress.aspx

Just pointing out. You can start multiple instances of SSMS. Maybe this is your solution.
