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.
@calvinWell, 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.
@calvinIt's less easy for me living inside a terminal for the overwhelming majority of what I do. But it's most frustrating when working in an HTML5 console for VPS configurations
