Are Granite Countertops now passe?

Over the past twenty years granite countertops became increasingly popular for use in residential kitchens and baths. Many alternative surfaces have been introduced to ride the wave of granite's popularity over the past few years citing they are better, safer and more economical. And some of these other surfaces have made some headway into the granite countertop market share.

Now that granite countertops are a common finish in many residential kitchens across this country are they now passe? If you were going to redo your kitchen today what surface would you prefer for your countertop? Would you be looking at greener / recycled materials? What surface would you consider more luxurious or more aesthetically pleasing. What feeling are you looking to convey?
