The wallet file Bitcoin-Qt created can be exported and imported into some of the other clients so if you decide it's taking way too long to synchronize (it can take up to several days) you can use this method to switch to another client and start handling your bitcoins instantly.

Personally I use blockchain.info for my "checkings" wallet and a paper wallet for my "savings" wallet.
