Pentru cine e interesat :)


"Vimperator is a free browser add-on for Firefox, which makes it look and behave like the Vim
text editor.
It has similar key bindings and you could call it a modal web browser,
as key bindings differ according to which mode you are in."

- Vim-like
- keybindings (h, j, k, l, gg, G, 0, $, ZZ, <C-f>, etc.) 
- Ex commands (:quit, :open www.foo.com, ...)
- Tab completion available for all commands with support for 'longest' matching when set in 'wildmode'
- Extensions! Yes, you can extend Vimperator's functionality with scripts just like you can extend Firefox with extensions.
- Explore JavaScript objects with :echo window and even context-sensitive tab completion.
- Hit-a-hint like navigation of links (start with f to follow a link)
- Advanced completion of bookmark and history URLs (searching also in title, not only URL)
- Vim-like statusline with a wget-like progress bar
- Minimal GUI (easily hide useless menubar and toolbar with :set guioptions=)
- Ability to :source JavaScript files, and to use a ~/.vimperatorrc file with syntax highlighting if you install vimperator.vim
- Easy quick searches (:open foo will search for "foo" in google, :open ebay terminator will search for "terminator" on ebay) with support for Firefox keyword bookmarks and search engines
- Count supported for many commands (3<C-o> will go back 3 pages
- Beep on errors
- Marks support (ma to set mark 'a' on a webpage, 'a to go there)
- QuickMarks support (quickly go to previously marked web pages with go{a-zA-Z0-9})
- :map and :command support (and feedkeys() for script writers)
- :time support for profiling
- Move the text cursor and select text with vim keys and a visual mode.
- External editor support
- Macros to replay key strokes
- AutoCommands to execute action on certain events
- A comprehensive :help, explaining all commands, mappings and options.
- Much more...
