Vim shortcuts! In your browser!

I wasn’t sure if this should be in Vim School, so I decided to put in Uncategorized. If anyone really loves Vim like I do, I’m sure you’ve noticed how much it sucks to have to use the mouse.

Enter Vim Vixen! It’s a Firefox plugin that brings Vim-style keybindings to your browsing experience. It’s not perfect, but it’s pretty cool.

Github project page, though you ought to install through Firefox’s addon page.

There are others, but this one seems to be the most recently updated, and thus actually works (Firefox 68 on Ubuntu 18.04.2)

cVim is pretty slick for Chrome. I need my j, k to scroll. too hip
