xarchiver
"Quite spartane and above all, buggy."
1
xfce4-goodies
"Comes with some very useful tools."
4
dvdbackup
"Incredible small, simple enough and very, very effective. Good substitute fo DVD Decrypter! Ah, its a CL, so very fast too."
5
opera
"It would be good but they admit to be working close to corporations. Also, this version is very updated and you must go to their website to install the new ones."
2
qpdfview
"Functional, simple and fast pdf viewer. Got all the main options. One minus for not allowing text selection with keyboard or with mouse by line (it only allows to draw a square which can be very inconvenient for multiple pages selections)."
4
pdfchain
"Too minimal and does not allow to interactively see what you are doing (i.e. no pdf viewer)"
2
pdfshuffler
"Too minimal with some tools not behaving properly (i.e. selecting the pages to split)."
2
keepassx
"No competition here; this is the absolute best password manager on Linux (and I've practically tried them all). It can be improved, like everything, but this is a must."
5
mupdf
"Much faster than Evince but practically no options at all. Not usable x me."
2
nautilus
"Too basic and very few options. All the menus in one button are quite annoying. It has a very good file search, though. Prefer Thunar or other more comples."
2
thunar
"Better than Nautilus except for one or two bits. OK for day-to-day use but basic if you need more intensive work on your files."
4
linphone
"I previously wasn't a fan at all but I re-tried a recent version (v.3.6 on Linux Mint 17 Qiana, XFCE) and most issues seem to be solved. You can call and text and keep records of both. You can also record the calls. Beware that it keeps history on a file in the HOME folder. With my not-so-fast connection the quality of the calls was good."
5
evince
"Good for options but very, very slow with large pdfs or maps."
3
qbittorrent
"Excellent. Few more options than Deluge and also, at least so far, it does not crach as much. One important feature it has is the serch engine which I find very, very valuable. It looks fast too. Personally, I've tested few torrent clients and find this is the best."
5
handbrake-gtk
"Fantastic. Simple to use but with advanced options too. Work seamlessly even when engaging the CPU to 100% (you can still due other work). With the few DVDs I've tried, it by-pass the encryption without without a glitch. Good interface. A must in the Linux world!"
5
qupzilla
"Very fast (compared to Firefox). Quite good. Still in its infancy (ex.: few add-ons, few options missing, limied bookmarks organizer etc.), yet few other option are integrated as standard (instead of as add-on) and development is very active. This is now my main browser and only use Firefox as a backup. All other are far too slow compared to this."
4
deluge
"Very good. Many options, practical, easy to use and good graphics. Pity the 1.3.5 version crashes too often."
4
gtkboard
"Many games not fully implemented yet. Lot of fun nevertheless. Old graphic style."
4
pyscrabble
"Could not even figure out how to start it."
2
njam
"Key response too fast on my PC. Poor graphic. Difficul for beginners."
3
transmission
"Lightweight but: -No search available -Much slower than alternatives (ie. Deluge) -Finds many less peers than alternatives."
3
firefox
"Absolute winner. Open-source, big list of plug-ins make it do whatever you want (even make it lighter...ex. flashblock) and reasonable on resource demanding."
5
keepass2
"Would be good but far too many issues/bugs possibly due to its not being linux native or due to Mono. KeepassX for me is much better."
2
thunderbird
"Tried all the major ones and this comes out the best. Open-source, plenty of plug-ins, not too demanding on resources and does the job very well."
