This program was designed to help Mac users immediately eject external drives connected to their computers. Quick Eject sits quietly on your Menu Bar from where you can change the way it operates, uses a small amount of CPU resources, and is very simple to handle.

In my testing, I mounted a USB stick and selected its name from the Quick Eject's drives list (if you click the app's icon, it reveals the main menu containing the list of connected drives). I preferred not to click the Eject All button mostly because the app listed my internal drives as well.

Sadly, the application lacks an option to ignore internal drives when clicking the Eject All button. Hence, you can eject connected drives and devices one by one by clicking their correspondent names from the app's list.

Another feature I'd add to this program would be the ability to define global hotkeys for immediately ejecting all connected drives (external of course) and devices.

Personally, I'd rather eject drives the normal way (right-click drive icon and click Eject button), without installing and working third-party apps on my Mac. However, it's up to you to decide if it's worth using this utility on your computer or not.
