    zsh - the last shell you will ever need

    zsh: The last shell you’ll ever need! Fried CPU

    Features of note include:

    * Programmable command line completion that can help the user type both options and arguments for most used commands, with out-of-the-box support for several hundred commands
    * Sharing of command history among all running shells
    * Extended file globbing allows file specification without needing to run an external program such as find
    * Improved variable/array handling
    * Editing of multi-line commands in a single buffer
    * Spelling correction
    * Various compatibility modes, e.g. zsh can pretend to be a Bourne shell when run as /bin/sh
    * Themeable prompts, including the ability to put prompt information on the right side of the screen and have it auto-hide when typing a long command
    * Loadable modules, providing among other things: full TCP and Unix domain socket controls, an FTP client, and extended math functions
    * Fully customizable

    I hear lots of good things about zsh but sadly I just haven't had the time to learn it

    The Fish shell is very similar to zsh and comes with a sensible set of defaults so should be ready to use out of the box.
