What applications and desktop environment come with the Debian image?

From videos I have seen, it looks like it comes with the XFCE desktop, is that the case? I was just wondering why perhaps Gnome 3 wasn't chosen as the default, as it is quite keyboard and touchscreen friendly, and possibly also more suited to physically smaller displays than some environments.

Do programs like Firefox, Thunderbird, Libre Office come already installed, or is the install fairly minimalist so as not to take up too much space with the initial install?

About apps:  I first installed Synaptic.  That gives me a gui based installer that has search capabilities.  So for, I've installed Geany for text and code editing, and played around with BlueFish for html/php/...  code editing, gftp for ftp-ing and others.  I also installed the Mate desktop environment, which I much prefer to the so-called 'lightweight' environments.  This last experiment isn't working very well, as the screen seems to be formatted to a 4K size, so you can launch a window that isn't visible on the corner of the screen that displays.  There ought to be a way to specify the proper screen size, but it's baffling me so far.
