modular web browser with vim like bindings

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." Uzbl comes in different flavors.

  • uzbl-core: main component meant for integration with other tools and scripts
  • uzbl-browser: a complete browser experience based on uzbl-core
  • uzbl-tabbed: wraps around uzbl-browser and multiplexes it
