Internet & Networking Uzbl is a collection of tools that form a browser (based on WebKit) which adhere to 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."

It's pronounced as 'usable' ?

Anyway, somehow i did not find it that usable ( pun intended ), needing a fast browser for my RaspberryPi I tested them all: uzbl, arora, surf, netsurf (no javascript meh), midori, chrome/ium, xxxterm (soon to be renamed xombrero) and I settled in with dwb ( http://portix.bitbucket.org/dwb/ ) although xxxterm is pretty good too.

And since talking about alternatives ( mainly vi-like keyboard driven ones), on my Pi I'm using i3 ( www.i3wm.org ) for window management, zathura ( http://pwmt.org/projects/zathura/ ) for PDF/PS/DjVU viewing and sxiv ( https://github.com/muennich/sxiv ) as an image viewer. These are all git/hg compiled since they're updated pretty often. The zathura creators also work on another lightweight WebKit based browser jumanji ( http://pwmt.org/projects/jumanji/ )
