qutebrowser: A Vim-Inspired Browser


I've tried a lot of Vim browser plugins before -- whether in Chrome or Firefox there are a lot of choices now. One project that's new to me is qutebrowser, which is actually a browser rather than a browser extension.

It's got a keybinding cheatsheet, so you can see how similar to Vim it is. It's based on PyQt5 and QtWebKit, and has a minimal GUI that wouldn't look out of place on a tiling window manager. In fact, it was inspired by dwb, which is influenced by Vimperator.

The readme lists similar projects, which includes a GTK-based browser called vimb. So if your system only has GTK then you may prefer to install that.
