Thread: Cool applications

  1. #1

    Cool applications

    Hey people,
    We all know there are a ton of cool applications for Linux - keeping track of them is the hard part and knowing all the apps out there is even tough. For instance i was looking and looking for someing to covert my mp3s to oggs, then rename and add ID3 tags. Tonight after I am l done with this task I find this!!

    Cantus - an easy to use tool for tagging and renaming MP3 and OGG/Vorbis files.

    So if you could please post something that is kinda unique lets everyone know. I hope to keep this thread sticky...

    BTW people!! I will be editing posts just to keep a consistant format, e.g. the application name will be a link to the application and that is about all. The context will not change. I am guessing this will get bigger and one of these days i will wanna catagorize stuff.

    And oh yea! all responses get an + carma point!

    gkrellm. Definitely a needed app. It makes everything nice...

    the standard in system monitering.
    Stuff gkrellm can do with the right pluggin: volume control, ever important moniter for hardware specs, e.g. CPU temperature, mail notification, control of radio cards. loads 'o' stuff.

    Prozilla - speed up downloads
    Squid - speed up web browsing & block web ads
    File Runner - excellent file manager

    That's all I can think of off the top of my head.

    edit by pbharris:
    Hey - that prozilla and file runner look very cool, is the squid you refer to the proxy version ?
