internet browser: dillo, flock
jabber client
network manager: wicd
office: siag
p2p client

what i recommend:

audio player - audacious (not sure about the amount of dependencies), mpg123 (CLI)
burning tool - you probably have cdrecord installed (CLI), there's also burn-cd (CLI)
p2p client - [there may be others, but i only know about] rTorrent (CLI), TinyP2P (CLI), and uP2P, which IMO is the most lightweight p2p client ever (CLI)
file manager: emelfm or emelfm2 (nice and clean, but has no fancy stuff), or good old mc (midnight commander)
