Summary

The Hacker's Browser. Vimium provides keyboard shortcuts for navigation and control in the spirit of Vim.

NOTE Edge does not allow Vimium to run on this Addons Store page and the Edge New Tab page, by design. Sorry about that!

NOTE Edge has some alarmist messaging around the permissions that Vimium needs to run. Really all it's asking for is that Vimium's javascript be loaded into every page. Don't be alarmed. Vimium never talks to any servers and does absolutely nothing with your data. Read the open source code if you're curious.

For more information about rebinding your keys and how to use many of Vimium's features, see here: https://github.com/philc/vimium/blob/master/README.md

Modifier keys are specified as <c-x>, <m-x>, <a-x> for ctrl+x, meta+x, and alt+x respectively.

Navigating the current page:

h       scroll left
j       scroll down
