Caret Browsing
Item media 1 screenshot

Overview

Browse the text of web pages using arrow keys.

This is scheduled to be deprecated. Press F7 to turn on Caret Browsing. Press it again to turn it off. Use arrow keys to move throughout the document. Click anywhere to move the cursor to that location. Press Shift + arrows to select text. Hold down Option to move by word. When you reach a link or control, it is automatically focused. Press Enter to click a link or button. When a focused control (like a text box or a list box) is capturing arrow keys, press Esc followed by the left or right arrow to continue Caret Browsing. Alternatively, press Tab to move to the next focusable control.

I don't get it. Chrome already does all of the things that are described here (i.e. F7 to turn on caret browsing). Installing this extension does not appear to have any effect. What gives?

I didn't ask for it, didn't need it. ANd now, it has overwritten ALL of my function keys. Can't change volume, mute, or turn up/down brightness with those keys, as they turn the extention on again. Remove from system. Forced me to install just to write this....
