keyboard shortcuts are very useful tools to accelerate the use of a program or operating system. As these commands are expanded over the years, are essential for a productive session at the computer. Unfortunately some applications are not limited to the support of a handful of stocks.
feel that web browsing on Chrome could do full control from the keyboard, can opt for an extension called Vimium . With this tool it is possible to move sites and control virtually all of Google browser options, without relying on the mouse.
As seen in the screenshot on this paragraph, the supplement provides pre-configured shortcuts for all navigation actions. The list is long and possibly not all we serve or interest, but it is good to have on hand to enhance our experience mouse free.Vimium
provides many shortcuts that the use of some letters is repeated. To differentiate other action must be careful to use upper or lower case. For example, pressing the letter lowercase “o” can open a URL, a bookmark or a saved item in the history. With the letter capital “O” (Shift + o), meanwhile, do the same actions but in a new tab.
good thing about the extension is that if it costs us aprendernos all commands, we can consult at any time by pressing “?” . Then I leave a list of some of the most useful shortcuts Vimium.
- j: Scroll Down;
- k: Scroll up;
- h: Scroll left;
- l: Right shift;
- r: Refresh page;
- yy: Copy the current URL to clipboard
- f: Copy a link in the page to the clipboard;
- f: Opening a link in the current tab;
- F: Open a link in a new tab;
- T: Search between open tabs;
- b: Open a bookmark;
- B: Open a bookmark in a new tab;

- K: Go to the tab on the right;
- J: Go to the tab on the left;
- t: New tab;

These are just some of the options but can see the other directly from the. Importantly manipulates how Vimium links. Pressing “F” to open one in a new tab, for example, we see that all the links in the page visited are highlighted and given their own keyboard shortcuts .
Another aspect to highlight is the ability to exclude websites for the commands do not work on them. This we can do it from the extension button added to the right of the address bar, as well as from its configuration section.
