I use i3wm bcz it's a window manager, and lightweight and customisable, and I can almost add shortcuts for everything, and it's a manual tailer, so I can choose where and how the next window be, finally it's configuration is completely understandable and simple

Probably this is the only window manager, that can add or remove keybindings on the move,


  1. Normal mode have default keys
  2. Resize mode will have the resize keys to increase or decrease the window sizes,
  3. Gap mode will have gap keys to increase the gaps or decrease the gaps,
