Next is a productivity focused, infinitely extensible power-browser. It comes with Emacs / VI bindings and is completely programmable. You can transform it any way you like!
In just the last months, we've released three new versions! Lots of exciting features, from hooks to continuous improvements to the "minibuffer" (a.k.a. the "power bar") to empower the users in a never-ending quest to fuzzy-searching everything!
The project has been seriously taking off these last couple of weeks. We would like to thank our 27 contributors, and all the users and testers that asked for new features, suggested improvements or reported bugs. Thanks!
So what exactly can you do with Next?
Go blazing fast when browsing the web! For starters, Next is keyboard driven and has fuzzy-completion everywhere.
You can write new commands for anything you want. You have the full power of the programming language at hand, without restricting you to a browser's API. Some examples: You can
git-clonethe current URL's repository, download Youtube videos and fuzzy-search for local files with
You can write hooks to extend your browsing experience. Write a function that is called when a given network event happens, or slightly modify the behaviour of built-in commands to fit your needs – perfectly.
Every tab history is saved as a tree, meaning you don't lose any page when going back. Want an outlook of your whole history? Call the
M-.key to get a list of the page headers, fuzzy-search them and go straight to them.
We need your support!
Next is being developed by a small team of computer scientists with a passion for changing the world of browsers. We rely on your support to keep development going!
Last month we started a crowdfunding campaign so that we can get to work on the next version. The campaign is ending on Friday, October 4th, and we've still got a long way to go. Only your support can help us go forward, every $1 helps!
We are also actively looking for people who would like to sponsor/be sponsored by us. If you are interested, get in touch by writing at
