CrunchBang also comes with many popular applications installed by default, including but not limited to Iceweasel (Firefox) browser , GNOME media player and Transmission BitTorrent Client. With the exception of a few packages, CrunchBang is built entirely from packages available from the Debian repositories. CrunchBang uses the same APT package management tools and update manager.
