Browsh is a modern, realtime, fully-interactive browser in your shell. It is currently backed by Firefox, so you can use almost all the sites that Firefox can. Meaning the world of JS, HTML5, SSL/TLS, WebGL, WebAssembly and more is now open to you from the comfort of your terminal.
In general all the keyboard shortcuts and mouse interactions that you would normally use on the desktop should work here. Most notably:
F1opens the full documentation
CTRL+lfocusses the URL bar
CTRL+topens a new tab
CTRL+wcloses the current tab
CTRL+\focuses the next tab
ARROW KEYSfor scrolling
LEFT MOUSE BUTTONto follow links and focus input boxes
Also note that there is a monochrome mode if your terminal doesn’t support true
colour, or has other rendering problems:
ALT+M. See the
terminal docs (yes you can just left click that link with your mouse) for tips on setting up your terminal and list of known working terminals.
Input boxes do work, though it can be a little hard sometimes to exactly where to click in order to get focus. A cursor will appear when you do click correctly.
Browsh is still in early Beta and being actively developed so many things don’t currently work. Please be patient.
For more detailed information please see the official introduction.
