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

Chromemacs is the chrome extension provides keyboard shortcuts for navigation and control in the spirit of Emacs. The source code is originally forked from Vimium. Pull-Requests are welcome and appreciated. *NOTE* Google does not allow Chromemacs to run on this Chrome Web Store page and the Chrome New Tab page, by design. Sorry about that! *NOTE* Chrome has some alarmist messaging around the permissions that Chromemacs needs to run. Really all it's asking for is that Chromemacs's javascript be loaded into every page. Don't be alarmed. Chromemacs never talks to any servers and does absolutely nothing with your data. Read the open source code if you're curious. Privacy Policy: For more information about rebinding your keys and how to use many of Chromemacs's features, see here: Modifier keys are specified as <c-x>, <m-x>, <a-x> for ctrl+x, meta+x, and alt+x respectively.
