This is just a rough summary of possibly best suited applications. The 
decision what program you prefere to use - it's up to you.

pdmenu, inx and twin are seems to be good approaches to achive what you 
have in mind.

bmv, zgv and arachne are good applications for pdf, pictures and web.
Though, I wasn't able to compile or run arachne on x86-64/amd64 hardy - 
libsvga(32bit) segfaults and the ggi-version didn't compile. An older 
ggi-version extracted from an rpm stalled with  
LibGGI: Failed to set mode: 800x600.F1.[C16/16]

moc is a rather good music-player, and mplayer as vlc are both good 

mutt, ncftp and tin are very good internet applications.

Try a couple of these programs and then make up your mind...
