i3 is a popular, open-source tiling window manager for Linux and Unix systems. It is known for its efficiency and flexibility, as well as its ability to dynamically arrange and organize windows on the screen. One of the key features of i3 is its tiling layout, which automatically arranges windows in a grid-like structure, without the need for manual resizing or repositioning. This can help to improve productivity and reduce clutter on the screen.
i3 also has a number of other useful features, such as support for multiple workspaces, configurable keybindings, and the ability to easily switch between different layouts. Additionally, it is highly customizable and can be configured to suit a wide range of users and workflow.
