Finding application's description

I've just installed Buster and am selecting which apps on my Stretch machine I wish to continue to use.

For some reason I had installed Gdebi.
I can't find a good description on which base a decision.
https://packages.debian.org lists no homepage.
https://manpages.debian.org links to https://launchpad.net/gdebi/ which gives no descriptive material. From search engine hits I gather was developed when Ubuntu made installation of deb files inconvenient. In a straight Debian environment, does it give any advantage over Synaptic &/or apt?

IIRC I used it when following the development of an app which was not yet in a official repository.
