Uzbl browser

A lightweight browser using ~150 Mo mem, with keyboard navigation and tabs gestion : Uzbl.


Uzbl follows the UNIX philosophy – “Write programs that do one thing and do it well. Write programs to work together. Write programs to handle text streams, because that is a universal interface.” The whole browser is keyboard controled, you’ll need to learn the right shortcuts. May not be an alternative to Firefox or Opera but remains fun and lightweight.

It comes in tree modes :

  • uzbl-browser will launch the one-window mode, with URL history (using dmenu)
  • uzbl-tabbed will allow tab browsing, you just need to learn the keyboard settings
  • uzbl-core targets developpers.
