Audacious, iceweasel, xine, thunar, terminator
That's my everyday use
while :; do eject -T; sleep 5; done
Unreliable Cup Holder
Iceweasel (because it works and I don't really need firefox when all of my favorite addons work just as well under the default crunchbang web browser), Icedove, Guayadeque, VLC, Comix (for reading manga / comic books), Libreoffice (million times better than GoogleDocs or Abiword for that matter), I use Asunder for ripping my cd's (it works like a charm, even looks for the correct data online), MusicBrainz Picard (for tagging my music correctly whenever I need to). I used to use Deluge for torrents but find Transmission (which is the crunchbang default) way more simple to use, the Scummvm emulator for my point & click games, and Calibre for managing my my nook and all of my ebooks.

john wesley hardin, was a friend, to the poor.
Seems like I'm the only one here who uses Conkeror. It's basically a browser based on Firefox's rendering engine that works a lot like emacs. It's quite focused on avoiding usage of the mouse. I think it's amazing, the only time I use anything else is when some webpage isn't working as intended on it (has only happened once as of yet)
Emacs and terminator are also super handy. I use mpd in conjunction with mpc for my music playing because I dig the idea having music playing without any apps open -- keeps things nice and neat.
Name's vool. Carvool.
browser (any will do, xlinks is fine for both no-X and X)
You, Sir, are an asshole.
Firefox (Iceweasel runs slowly in my machines for some reason) / Firefox UX Nightly
Transmission (planning to turn to qBittorrent)
Although I use Openbox, I have a bunch of Xfce apps installed.

My Favorite Apps are:
Chrome (Web Browser)
Nano and Geany (Text editor)
Minecraft (It's a good game.)
Libreoffice (Great Office Suite)
Dropbox (Great Cloud Sync tool. I've ditched all my other cloud services for this)
Skype (How I keep in touch with my distant family eg. Grandparents Uncles Aunts and Cousins. Also friends that have moved or I don't live near. If I live near a friend I talk to his/her FACE IN PERSON. )
Whoops I forgot
Spotify Linux Preview (iBad sync (Hint: Stallman Reference) Android Sync (I have an iBad and an android.)

Thanks for mentioning SpeedCrunch. Qt look doesn't match my GTK theme, but it's way better than Galculator.
Edit: qt4-qtconfig solved my GTK theme issue.

Well first and foremost Krita a illustration program that is so good that if I can't install it without major hassle - I wont use that distro at all. Its a program made for illustrators (or dedicated hobbyists) with one single goal in mind: to be a from-scratch-to-finish illustration program. Not a photo editor or layoutprogram but just that. Its brilliant.
Beyond that there is some kind of browser (usually Iceweasel or Firefox), usually VLC, any old mailprogram to keep tabs on stuff, pidgin or some such chat program that works with Google Talk and Facebook and Dropbox to dump files on clients.
I used to be more obsessive about Steam - I guess I still am since I have a ton of Humble Bundle games lying there - but I don't play as much as I used to.
One great upside with Debian based distrsos btw is how well it tend to work OOTB with my banged up old wacom bamboo fun that I don't want to let go of even though its years beyond its sell-by date simply because it can take a beating, its lightweight and travels well. Scroll wheel, buttons, everything works without having to be set.
faves in bold:
yeahconsole (or was, until i started using xmonad's scratchpads), with urxvt for terminal, with tmux.
emacs, including erc (for irc) and gnus (for email and stuff).
uzbl-browser, and now also i use vimperator on my firefox (firefox not getting bold text, it is not a fave).
plait for music (and plaiter, but it is misbehaving for me at the moment). ~tho i do also have mpd with ncmpcpp, and clementine
now these may not be every day for most of you, but they're all damn near everyday for me:
gimp, mypaint, audacity
oh, and i have to include xmonad too. i know some may say it isnt an "app", but it'd feel wrong to leave it out of a list of software that makes me smile as much as all of the above does, since xmonad has been responsible for more smiles than the rest put together (emacs arrived late, and is fast catching up though).
oh, a few more command line and ncurses dohickies that are definite everyday faves too: htop, alsamixer, ranger, ncdu (or just du), tree*, forest**, ssh, sshfs, eix***, alias****, locate,
some day, i'll get into vim and zsh too, for i know once using them, from what little i have learned of them, they would shoot up straight into the faves.
ls -R | grep ":$" | sed -e 's/:$//' -e 's/[^-][^\/]*\//--/g' -e 's/^/ /' -e 's/-/|/'
stick that in a script or alias, call it forest, and viola, cant see the forrest for the *tree?
*** eix: dont worry, it's for gentoo. actually growing rather fond of equery these days now too. maybe i should just say portage, or gentoo, can i count all of gentoo as an app? lol.
**** alias, yes. why? i never use it in the command line directly. yup, but as i was thinking of my fave command line apps, i just kept on thinking of my favourite commands, which were nearly all aliases, agu, agup, agdu, acs, acsi, agr, agpr, agar, premerg, mergence, forest (mentioned above ~ have it in a script too though), remote-drives-on, ovhtoosync, jntoochroot, cruxchroot, camptony, s, big, running, cdls, dit, and so on. so i suppose i've got to give some praise to alias for all those.
PS, dmenu! (and tickr)

First time posting long time cruncher.
pidgin, emacs, iceweasel, vlc, terminator!
Funny thing. Apart from iceweasel and smplayer (mplayer2) this list of mine is totally changed:
icedove -> sylpheed (mutt on framebuffer)
mpd+ncmpcpp -> deadbeef (moc on framebuffer)
geany -> emacs
A few changes which have made my world even better:
ibus + anthy input method fcitx + mozc input method
evince zathura with mupdf-backend
mplayer mplayer2, mpv
Because ibus had undergone a transition in sid and was broken when I needed it, mozc has a much better dictionary and completion alogorithm than Anthy, mplayer2 supports seeking when paused and mpv has much more active development (and a nice on-screen search bar!) than mplayer2. I need to port the config, though, which in my case is looong.
