Latest reviews

  • (2021-10-15) ekarron: Pleeeease fix the bugs (focus issue to search bar)
  • (2020-09-17) Sἁq!b: This extension is garbage. I was expecting it to remap my function keys for browser forward, refresh and back. But it did nothing.
  • (2020-08-23) Elijah Markin: I just love it. Super customisable.
  • (2020-08-14) norio norio: Not worked
  • (2020-02-22) Ronald H Doolittle Jr: how do you use this extension? cant find any info on how to turn on or anything
  • (2020-02-03) Doug Brewer: The most flexible keyboard shortcut for Chrome. It defaults to VIM like shortcuts, but you can customize. Unexpectedly powerful - if a bit nerdy. But you don't have to be a VIM enthusiast to figure out how to make this useful. Another unexpected feature is that every link on the page has a shortcut - just hit the space bar to see it. You don't even need a mouse once this is up an running! Great for news junkies.
  • (2019-08-12) Romain R: Great, lot of features, easy to configure, thanks !
  • (2019-06-07) Chris Vydas: Does not work at all, in addition, this is not at all what i was expecting. had the impression this would allow me to control/edit Chromes shortcut keys and create new one but this is nothing like that. i created some custom actions and nothing happened. uninstalled
  • (2018-07-13) blue: want to adjust the size of the clock!!
  • (2018-06-04) Arther Taylor: This extension was unecpectedly feature rich, it has the ability to type a word quickly and have that word you type literally act as a shortcut, i type "bm" and it adds a shortcut directly to my favourites, or i can type "copyurl" anywhere on chrome to copy the url to my clipboard, you can also assign several different keywords or shortcuts to the same action if you struggle to remember exactly what the spelling for the specified shortcut was like me hahaa, eventually you remember it and stick to one thing and can delete the others to save space and declutter your shortcuts settings. I'm surprised it works at all considering it's only got 25 reviews and a thousand users, but that sure to change if the word gets out. One thing i don't exactly understand is what these (hints / scrolling) features are? "this extensions isn't very innovative in its explanations, it seems like the creator is on a little but of a tight budget" but never the less, this is an unexpectedly powerful tool, however it's been day one so ill review soon with any cons i've found!
  • (2018-05-11) Toshi M: I prefer this than Shortkeys. I use this with Emacs like keybind. To enable key customization, you need tab reloading after configuration. 設定変更したあと,タブをリロードしないと変更あ有効にならないのに注意が必要. キーバインドではCtrlもAltもShiftも使えるようです。スクロールする長さもカスタマイズ可能。 自分はEmacs風キーバインドに設定して使ってます。 Gmailなどデフォルトのキー設定があるものについては、衝突を回避するために「このURLについては全キー設定を無効」な設定にするのがオススメ。
  • (2018-04-05) Darion Leigh: Doesn't turn on - simply does nothing
  • (2018-02-15) love it. the scroll isnt working thought.
  • (2017-04-18) Ccgreen: Could not get it to work. The "scroll down" (or whatever I was trying) - showed in bottom left, but nothing happened with any of the keyboard shortcuts. Clearly based on the prior reviews - I must be doing something wrong??
  • (2017-01-06) Matteo Valerio Falessi: This is the most promising app to implement emacs keybindings in Chrome. Anyway it is of fundamental importance that it becomes Open Source.
  • (2016-10-24) Hen Engel: Very powerful tool. Still needs some work, but huge potential...
  • (2016-10-08) Yusei36: Better performence then Vimium
  • (2016-08-23) Jeir Lee: where are the previous and next page hotkeys??
  • (2016-06-20) Abdelrahman Sahmoud: I have no idea how was I using my browser without this extension. Kunihiro Andou THANK YOU!
  • (2016-03-04) Shiqi Cao: Amazing tool, now I can control my browser just using mouse. That's tool I was looking for years!
  • (2016-01-21) 黒詩紅月: 機能していないです
  • (2015-11-06) Alex Ivasi: This extension forced me to jump from Firefox to Google Chrome :) p.s. it is like Vimium on steroids - but looks much more powerful - please, keep it updated! 5 start! Excellent job.
  • (2014-10-25) Brian White: ummmm no help or how to get started...
  • (2014-07-29) Acer Chang: Better than other similar extensions!
  • (2014-06-19) Alessandro Stoppato: Great work!! it's like being in vim while browsing the web! cool! :D UPDATE: interfere with input field on a banned site. need to disable or access the banned site via private session :/
  • (2014-05-30) Excellent! Good job baby!

    Why the F does this extension ask for so many sensitive permissions AND the developer has very chinese name?!
  • (2020-06-12, v:9.4) Clifford E.: question

  • (2020-04-02, v:9.4) Matthew Howell: Your extentsion and ChomeOS
    I can't get your extension to work in ChromeOS, even though the Chrome Web Store says your extension is compatible with ChromeOS. What am I doign wrong?
  • (2020-01-28, v:9.4) U Y: on/off hard-coded keyboard shortcut
    the on/off keyboard shortcut for this extension is shift+esc - this is hard-coded and cannot be changed. this keyboard shortcut also happens to be the same for bringing up chrome browser's task manager. you have to change yours to a modifiable shortcut
  • (2019-10-27, v:9.4) ekarron: "search web in new tab" bar focus
    the "search web in new tab" function works but after pressing the hotkey the search bar isn't focused so you have to use the mouse to focus the bar which makes it useless(
  • (2019-05-28, v:9.4) muhammad zain: not turnon
    how to turn on please reply
  • (2019-05-21, v:9.4) Nagaraj: start controlling only by voice
    i love this app but only one drawback is i have to click the icon to give new input each and every time, any option is there to give new input through voice only instead of clicking mic icon or ALT & TAB.
  • (2019-03-24, v:9.4) M D: Scrolling
    all the scrolling options (down, up, to top..etc) don't seem to work
  • (2018-09-25, v:9.4) Harsh Pareek: Open source?
    A lot of people who are interested in your extensions are developers, and given that you ask for permission to access our data on all websites we visit, which my company may have a problem with. One way to deal with this is to open source your extension, so we can go through it and check that nothing malicious is happening (it is not a certainty that you can quickly find a security flaw, but it atleast makes it harder for the developer to exploit the extension)
  • (2018-04-12, v:9.4) Rafael Junqueira: How to use
