Nyxt web browser

(Formerly Next.)

Nyxt is a keyboard-oriented, extensible web-browser designed for power users. It has familiar key-bindings (Emacs, VI, CUA), is fully configurable and extensible in Lisp, and has powerful features for productive professionals.

If you like Nyxt and if you want to help future development, please support us on Patreon or give us a star, thank you!

Warning: Nyxt is under active development. Feel free to report bugs, instabilities or feature wishes.

Fast tab switching

Switch easily between your open tabs via fuzzy search. If you are looking for, you could type in ele, exa, epl, or any other matching series of letters.

Multiple selection

Commands can accept multiple inputs, allowing you to quickly perform an operation against multiple objects. In the example below we search for penguins, and only open up links that have the text “animal” within them.

Powerful Bookmarks

Bookmark a page with tags. Search bookmarks with compound queries. Capture more data about your bookmarks, and group and wrangle them in any way you like.

Multi tab search

Search multiple tabs at the same time, and view all the results in a single window. Jump quickly through your open tabs to find what you need.

History as a tree

History is represented as a tree that you can traverse. smarter than the “forwards-backwards” abstraction found in other browsers, the tree makes sure you never lose track of where you’ve been.

For a complete list of features, please see the manual.
