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. You only see what you need
* what is not browsing, is not in uzbl. Things like url changing,
loading/saving of bookmarks, saving history, downloads, ... are handled
through external scripts that you write
* 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
* Uzbl keeps it simple, and puts _you_ in charge.
