Summary: it learns your "cd" commands, then lets you jump to one based on pattern matching. In the event of a tie, it picks the one you've used most frequently and recently.

I'm gettin' real close to making my own RSS feed reader.

I don't want a GUI but newsboat is feeling just oddly clunky and annoying to navigate tbh.

And no, I will not use emacs.

I would honestly prefer waiting at blank page with a progress meter until all the assets have loaded so that the layout can be computed and THEN dispayed over a Web page that jumps and morphs around as the media comes in.
