Most Debian application packages depend on other packages, containing libraries or other utilities. When the application package is removed, the dependencies are still on the system. Debfoster can detect such "orphaned" dependencies (unlike apt and dpkg) and will clean them up. It can be used as a front-end to apt or standalone.
