The power of deckers is pretty much like that of mages, in fact
they're the exact techy counterpart of mages use matrix gear just like
spells. For example, Sticky Fingers allows you to steal nu yen from
your opponent, Steam Roller allows you to trash electrical challenges
on a die roll, Sleaze lets you reset a triggered alarm, Browse lets
you look at two unrevealed challenges . There's others but this is
what I remember of off the top of my head.

Plus, most deckers have Recon, which is a priceless ability. A couple
have the Tech Skill, and Ice Queen has a nasty ability where you can
turn her to force an opponent to lose a nu yen.

These messages were posted a long time ago on a mailing list far, far away. The copyright to their contents probably lies with the original authors of the individual messages, but since they were published in an electronic forum that anyone could subscribe to, and the logs were available to subscribers and most likely non-subscribers as well, it's felt that re-publishing them here is a kind of public service.
