1. newsboat (cli): an rss/atom feed reader. (looking for a good alternative.)

2. transmission-daemon (cli): a bittorrent client for all your torrent management needs. along with transmission-remote, i recommend using its web-interface at localhost:9091.

3. nnn (cli): a very fast file manager. i haven't tried vifm, but it also seems like a good alternative, if you are willing to invest some time in getting familiar with the keybindings and doing a little bit of configuration.

4. links (cli, gui): an excellent web-browser with enough features. (there're good alternatives like w3m, elinks, lynx that i haven't tried yet.) (note that you can use it with transmission-cli to add torrents from sites like 1337x.to without the annoying popups and ads.)

5. youtube-dl (cli): a small software to download videos from a variety of streaming sites. you can use it in combination with mpv to stream videos with a minimum cpu usage.

6. gallery-dl (cli): a small software to download photos from a variety of sites. i think ripme is a good alternative. 

7. imv (cli): probably the best image viewer out there. a good alternative is feh.

8. tmux (cli): a terminal multiplexer. has a lot of features like tmux-resurrection that allows you to restore sessions (and programs) the way they were left even after shutting down your machine.

9. htop (cli): a good system monitor written in lua. better alternative than top.

10. misc: wget, curl, aria2, fzf, ueberzug, blender, gimp, inkscape, krita, vivaldi, firefox, freecad, qbittorrent, xclip, scrot, xbanish, unclutter, termite, st, xterm, instaloader, tuir, tiktok-scraper, blackbox, dwm, dmenu, surf, qutebrowser, xdman, irssi, weechat, yandex-disk, p7zip, rtorrent, ytfzf.
