Review:
Vimium is an amazing tool that allows users to control the browser without needing a mouse. Vimium has a learning curve because it relies on close to 40 keyboard shortcuts - but it‘s a lifesaver for someone who has trouble using a mouse effectively. Fortunately, typing the question mark reveals a shortcut cheat sheet. I particularly like the the way Vimium accesses page links. Press Shift+F and each link on a page gets assigned a letter. Typing that letter opens the link in a new tab. It is brilliant. In addition, Vimium is customizable; every shortcut can be modified to the users needs. 

This is a powerful tool that can enable the user to control the browser environment with the keyboard alone. The more you use it the more you love it.
