I need a browser that is fast, not bloated, stores my data (bookmarks, history, account settings, preferences, ...) in simple text files that I can keep under version control, something that does not reinvent the wheel, something that I can control.
Well, I could not find it.
So I started the uzbl browser project.
The project is just a few days old, but already some developers joined me and we're having a lot of fun hacking. One of them (Mike) was even creazy enough to register a domain for it with a website and all.
So there you have it: uzbl.org.
It is stil very early in the process, but some things already work.
Here are some of the ideals (not all implemented yet):
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.
Maybe you could provide IRC channel address? Couldn't find anything like that :(

It's on the front page of uzbl.org.

Just curious, but what stands "uzbl" for? Or is it simply a fantasy name?

"usable", in lolcat pronounciation ;-)

Hopefully this approach means that the whole shit won't crash when one site is.
