"Want to take full keyboard control of Firefox? Tired of having to mouse around the Web? Firefox has a good set of shortcuts by default, but if you want to go completely keyboard-driven, take a look at Vim-inspired extension Vimperator.

"Vimperator is an amazingly complete add-on for Firefox that gives you access to almost all of Firefox's features from the keyboard. It takes its inspiration from the popular vi-clone Vim, so many of the keybindings will already be familiar to you if you're a Vim user. Even if not, Vimperator provides a great way to ditch the mouse and control Firefox from the keyboard.

"The Vimperator extension is available from the Mozilla Add-ons for Firefox site. It should work with current releases of Firefox, the current 2.2 release of Vimperator works with Firefox 3.5 through 3.6."
