fish (friendly interactive shell) is a shell focused on interactive use, discoverability, and friendliness.
fish has very user-friendly and powerful tab-completion, including descriptions of every completion, completion of strings with wildcards, and many completions for specific commands. It also has extensive and discoverable help. A special help command gives access to all the fish documentation in your Web browser. Other features include smart terminal handling based on terminfo, an easy to search, no duplicates history, and syntax highlighting.
