comment How to find executable filetypes?
If you improve your question, so that most of the comments get obsolete, these comments can be deleted. This improves the question even further, since there is less noise to read. Think information / noise ratio.

comment How to find executable filetypes?
Nobody expects you to be an expert when asking, but for question, to be useful for others, it should be selfcontained, and give all needed information. The reader shouldn't be forced to read all the spread comments. Users search for questions by keywords, phrases and decide to read it by the headline. If you don't work on your question to improve it, it is useless for others and should receive even more downvotes. If it is clarified in the question, what you're really looking for - mainly in the headline - it can be upvoted. A downvote is however locked until the question is edited.

Maybe because you don't correct your statement about executable files, but in the comments we can read that you're only interested in binary-elf files?

@Huygens: No, you can execute shell scripts with exec-calls, see: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shebang_%28Unix%29 . If there is a shebang, only the rest of the script is executed by the interpreter. Since 1980.

@Ian: But Shellscripts are executable by the kernel. Executable flag + appropriate shebang means executable file. Or flag + binary-elf, or flag + a.out, or flag + binfmt-patch.

@Huygens: So directories are files (everything is a file on Unix), but to exclude them, just use find -type f -executable.

No. The a.out files are executable as well, and files marked executable like bashscripts with appropriate shebang.

comment Lightweight browser for linux
a) What is incremental search? Search google.com, for instance, for XY, and then all links google displays, and then all links the links link to? b) Which ohter browser did you already look at? Chrome, opera?

comment How can you combine all lines that end with a backslash character?
Your command doesn't work for me: cpp: “-P: No such file or directory cpp: warning: '-x c' after last input file has no effect cpp: unrecognized option '-P:' cpp: no input files A cpp --version reveals cpp (Ubuntu 4.4.3-4ubuntu5.1) 4.4.3 - what? Ubuntu is patching cpp? Why? I would have expected to read GNU...

comment How can you combine all lines that end with a backslash character?
@manatwork: Outsch! :) I was astonished, that the sed command worked, but of course, it wasn't the sed command, but the bash itself interprets backslash-linebreak as continuation of the previous line.
