Recommended Linux Applications and How to Install Them


This topic will contain a list of Applications and Programs that the community recommends and finds useful for Linux. Each Program will have its own post within this topic; posts will contain a short explanation of the program as well as a list of its features and then will detail how to install the program. Most of the programs in here will be in the public repositories that are used on most Linux distributions; however if there is one that is not contained in the default repositories the process to install the third party repository will be detailed in that Program's post. If you have any questions or problems installing any of these programs please post a new topic in the Linux forum. If you would like to recommend a program be added to this list please PM NickAu or Computerxpds.


 

Below will be an organized list of each post for each Program broken up by category and alphabetized.

Otter Browser

153-workspace-1_007.png
 
It is not a clone of the Opera web browser and it’s not yet another QtWebKit Internet browser. Instead, the project tries to provide users with a standalone application that uses the QtWebEngine to provide support for the Blink engine, as well as support for multiple backends.

Even if it tries to recreate the classic Opera UI, the program’s preferences dialog borrows some elements from the Mozilla Firefox web browser. It comes with five tabs for configuring content, privacy, search, general and advanced settings.
Features at a glance
The application can block unwanted pop-ups, tells websites to not track user’s activity, remembers passwords, browsing and download history, accepts cookies, and can automatically clears history on exit.

It provides users with a modern tabbed browsing experience, where new tabs are opened next to the active one. It is possible to delay loading of tabs until they are selected, as well as to reuse the current tab.

In the advanced settings, users can enable suggestions for bookmarks, history and search results, add or remove proxies for the network connection, as well as to add keyboard shortcuts and macros. In addition, program supports multiple text encodings and features a download manager.
DuckDuckGo is the default search engine
The default search engine for Otter is DuckDuckGo, but users can also choose between the Bing, Yahoo, Wikipedia, Google and YouTube search engines. Additionally, the default zoom level, fonts and colors of the displayed web content can be easily changed.
 
http://linux.softpedia.com/get/Internet/HTTP-WWW-/Otter-Browser-103118.shtml
 
The latest version available is Otter Browser 0.9.05, which has been recently released, coming with the below changes:

  • experimental backend for QtWebEngine (Blink), disabled by default;
  • added advanced options for cookies;
  • added interface for configuring toolbars;
  • added support for bookmark bars;
  • added Ctrl+Tab tab switcher;
  • added support for taking notes;
  • added interface to deny or grant permission to use geolocation etc. (set of available permissions
  • depends on what is supported by backend);
  • restore tab position when restoring closed tab;
  • tabs are now drawn horizontally in vertical toolbars;
  • many other fixes and improvements.
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:otter-browser/release

$ sudo apt-get update

$ sudo apt-get install otter-browser

To Uninstall Otter Browser
