Seriously though, whose bright idea was it for ^w to close windows? That key combo's supposed to ERASE A WORD, NOT CLOSE THE FUCKING WINDOW



@architect old CUA/Mac shit from '84. They could care less what Emacs and readline assigned their binds.

Well, screw those guys then. And should I ever write a browser, there's no way in hell I'm closing a window/tab on ^w

@architect except literally everyone else who learned to use a browser and software consistent with CUA binds and has never touched Emacs or readline in their lives.

I myself just keep the muscle memory separately.
