  • (2018-09-18) TCC: yeeeee
  • (2018-09-09) Mateusz Wykurz: Simple and neat. Now has the option to blacklist some sites.
  • (2016-12-28) laionel zamudio: no sirbe de na´
  • (2016-09-13) Dave M: The extension is really neat. I can finally quickly search the Interwebs.
  • (2016-06-21) Marco Syfrig: Really cool! Just what I needed, I hate using my mouse and can do almost everything besides browsing. This extension is a good step to mouseless browsing for me :)
  • (2015-07-05) Princess Cutie: it is ver exciting
  • (2014-01-26) Wojciech Frącz: I think that if the link is an image, it should analyze the link's title attribute or/and image's alt attribute. BTW - great extension!
  • (2013-08-13) Saida Balsells: Perfect! Great idea, very comfortable
  • (2012-11-06) Arun K: nice idea. very good for ergonomics. Thanks!
  • (2012-09-27) Steven Shults: The dancing link animation is cute, but this duplicates functionality already built-in to Chrome: 1) Ctrl-F to search for text in the link 2) Click the down arrow to get to the instance of the word you're looking for 3) Hit esc 4) Hit enter. Tada! (This works for strings of text as long as you like instead of a random two or three character string chosen by dead mouse. This also works on links that are in frames, which dead mouse doesn't)
  • (2012-09-14) Khoshbin Ali: Really Hewlpfull
  • (2012-08-11) Julius H: this is one of the best, you are a real wiz.
  • (2012-08-09) Sumeet Shah: works fine. but what i find missing here is the support for disabling the feature for the selected sites.
  • (2012-08-08) Rafael Abreu: like thank you
  • (2012-08-07) Nedim Türkkahraman: Şu işe yarar: fareyi kullanmadan gezindiğiniz bir sayfada ki linklere hızlı ulaşıp tıklamanızı sağlar. Nasıl kullanılır: web sitesinde herhangi bir linki örneğin "Devamı İçin Tıkla" linkine gitmek için klavyeden "dev... yazmanız ile o link dalgalanmaya başlayacak, tab kullanarak diğer eşleşen sonuçlara gidebilirsiniz
  • (2012-08-06) Alex Popescu: I just installed it, the only thing I don't like is the way it does the highlight, I don't like the shaking thing. All matched links should be highlighted (a thin border and an transparent overlay would do), and the foucsed one should have a bit more contrast
  • (2012-08-03) Great idea and works beautifully. Beyond a hotkey to turn on/off like everyone is suggesting, I'm looking for a blacklist option to always disable the extension on those sites (like in Google Reader/Gmail where there is already a good kb shortcuts system)
  • (2012-07-31) Menzo W: Great idea, and overal works great. Thanks a lot guys!
  • (2012-07-31) Gabriel Giambastiani: First I would like to thank you for the great chrome extension. It would be great if there is a kind of on/off option or a list of sites in which the extension won't work. It's a little annoying in sites like google reader seeing the post tittle shaking.
  • (2012-07-27) Rahul Choudhary: Dead simple to use. Fabulous! But need a on/off toggle shortcut
  • (2012-07-26) Adrian-Tudor Panescu: You need to either allow to quickly enable/ disable it or provide a blacklist (prevent the extension to work on certain websites, e.g. Google Reader).
  • (2012-07-26) David Lester: <3
  • (2012-07-25) Shea Bunge: Great idea. As others have mentioned, this plugin needs a hotkey to toggle on/off and perhaps a settings page. Also it would be great if the link's title (hover text) and link URL was displayed as it is if you use the mouse to hover over the link. Great extension anyway.
  • (2012-07-24) Denis Baranov: Great idea but horrible execution. The lack of a hotkey to enable and the lack of options make this extension highly unusable. I went for Modified Keyboard Navigation for Chrome instead.

    If only You could bring A mouse Gesture version to Like similar to crx That can open A site and switch tabs by swiping Left or Right And such That would be impressive too and if only This Extension could Launch A specific custom Page of choice by A single button Like 1 you really dont see yourself using for Anything Else ctrl alt and so forth and switch Tabs By Arrow Keys Left and right All those would be good all makes Sense all will be as important and meaningful its a Great Extension over all it will get better in time with updates
  • (2016-12-28, v:1.10) laionel zamudio: donde esta
    no es una aplicasion
  • (2015-12-15, v:1.10) Jordan: this sucks
    it wont work
  • (2012-08-11, v:1.8) Jonathan Rajavuori: Captures enter on form field submit
    This has annoyed me several times: 1. Type a few characters to activate DeadMouse 2. Realize that you hadn't actually clicked or tabbed to a form field, the place where you actually meant to type those few characters 3. Type out the full form entry, hit Enter to submit 4. DeadMouse intercepts Enter and goes to the activated link instead Other than this, DeadMouse has been amazing! Thanks for making it. Other things that would be nice to have in it, but aren't essential at all: 1) More options for animating currently active link, 2) Ability to activate form elements (Possibly by overlaying a hint on them to type out)
  • (2012-07-19, v:1.7) Suggestion
    I LOVE this extension. It saves a lot of time and I've been looking for something like this for a while. Anyway, in it's current form, I wish it did these things: 1. using some key combo or better yet, read the watermark of textboxes and help me navigate there 2. a way to navigate to / activate buttons. Cheers!
  • (2012-07-16, v:1.7) Fran Pregernik: Sites with js keyboard hooks
    Hi, It seems to conflict with sites like that which bind some keys to site specific actions. I noticed it in Google Reader. It would be nice to have a whitelist/blacklist website filter for such cases.
