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.”

  • very minimal graphical interface.
  • what is not browsing, is not in uzbl. Things like url changing, loading/saving of bookmarks, saving history, downloads, … are handled through external scripts
  • controllable through various means such as fifo and socket files, stdin, keyboard and more
  • advanced, customizable keyboard interface with support for modes, modkeys, multichars, variables (keywords) etc. (eg you can tweak the interface to be vim-like, emacs-like or any-other-program-like)
  • focus on plaintext storage for your data and configs in simple, parseable formats
