Vimium is a browser extension that provides keyboard-based navigation and control of the web in the spirit of the Vim editor.
Install via the Chrome web store or the Firefox Addons site.
Modifier keys are specified as
<a-x> for ctrl+x, meta+x, and alt+x respectively. For shift+x and ctrl-shift-x, just type
