Is it possible to use computer without window manager, with Xorg only? As I understand I need shortcuts to start browser for example.

Why not just use a lightweight WM, like openbox or one of the tiling WMs? There's also FVWM3

you can 'register' shortcuts in almost any window manager, for less frequent apps people use launchers like rofi or dmenu

Use xbindkeys. There's nothing magic happening here, it's just programs listening for global keyboard events and running programs in response.

You should still use a WM though, unless you plan to do window resizing and stacking manually with wmctrl.

Yes, I was just curious. I use i3 and Sway, here I have shortcuts through their config file.
