I don't know about “any other browser”, we have yet to produce an
exhaustive list of (I suppose you mean web) browsers.

But I think that GTK default bindings maps ^C and ^V to clipboard
access (I think there exist others, like Shift+Ins for pasting, but you
should check those).

Check that the keybindings you build don't override those though.

You can also use the primary copy buffer instead of the clipboard,
there you just have to select text for copying it, and the middle click
for pasting it.

You shouldn't need any.

You're welcome!
