qutebrowser (pronounced "cute browser") is a web browser for Linux, Windows, and macOS operating systems with Vim-style key bindings and a minimal GUI. It is keyboard-driven and is inspired by similar software such as Vimperator and dwb. It uses DuckDuckGo as the default search engine. Qutebrowser is included in the native repositories of Linux distributions such as Fedora and Arch Linux.
Qutebrowser is developed by Florian Bruhin, for which he received a CH Open Source award in 2016.
As in Vim/vi the browser has a command mode and an insert mode. In command mode key bindings can be used to perform functions, in example: 'G' to go to the bottom of a page, and 'gg' to the top. Specific commands can also be bound to keys or key-sequences by the user. A cheat sheet of all key bindings can be found here and they can be trained here.
