For youtube videos, rather just change the address by inserting "ss" into the address as follows, no additional software required and works on any platform that I tried it on:

Code:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tnj9E5I3DkM
and change it to:

Code:
https://www.ssyoutube.com/watch?v=Tnj9E5I3DkM
then just save the video file.

Everything I use has kinda been mentioned. Sublime_text, guake, youtube-dl

What I like about youtube-dl is it does twitter and facebook, you can choose the output, and sometimes I use it just to grab the mp3.

I don't see Lutris here. Invaluable to make it easier to manage DXVK windows games.
glances also a very nice top replacement - yes I know there 1001 top replacements, but this one is like htop, just easier, and give better information, including docker containers and sensors, even spells out what is wrong.

Guake - Dropdown thermal
I have it set to my hotkey F12.. anywhere anytime just press F12 and you got a terminal sliding out from the top :) Oh and you can tab it also
Ctrl-~ for me. Much more accessible than reaching for F12

notepadqq -- similar to Notepad++ works great!
does this work like notepad++ in regards to
“sessions”?
What I like about notepad++ is that I can create multiple files/tabs without saving them, close/reopen notepad++ and they are still there

XnView - similar to IrfanView

For downloading videos from Youtube and other popular sites don't bother with software or workarounds and just install the Savetube extension http://sebaro.pro/savetube/
