keyboard focused web browser with Emacs look and feel

Conkeror is a highly-programmable web browser based on Mozilla XULRunner. It has a sophisticated keyboard system for running commands and interacting with web page content, modelled after Emacs and Lynx. It is self-documenting and extensible with JavaScript. It comes with builtin support for several Web 2.0 sites like several Google services (Search, Gmail, Maps, Reader, etc.),, Reddit, and YouTube. For easier editing of form fields, it can spawn external editors. For this feature the recommended conkeror-spawn-process-helper package needs to be installed. Despite its very similar sounding name, Conkeror is not related to the KDE web browser and file manager Konqueror in any way.


More information about apt-get remove

Advanced Package Tool, or APT, is a free software user interface that works with core libraries to handle the installation and removal of software on Debian, Ubuntu and other Linux distributions. APT simplifies the process of managing software on Unix-like computer systems by automating the retrieval, configuration and installation of software packages, either from precompiled files or by compiling source code.

apt-get is the command-line tool for handling packages, and may be considered the user's "back-end" to other tools using the APT library.

apt-get remove is identical to install except that packages are removed instead of installed. Note that removing a package leaves its configuration files on the system. If a plus sign is appended to the package name (with no intervening space), the identified package will be installed instead of removed.
