Why to use Vimium?
I have just started to use vimium. It’s a great tool which provides many features.
One of the best feature that convinced me to use it is that:
This function allows you to search in all tabs(even in seperated window)
Also, I want to talk about history. As an emacs user I used keysnail project which aims emacs keybindings plus same features as vimium. But… It was good enough for those times.
Why I stopped using keysnail
Security is the most important reason! Since that keysnail will not be supported after Firefox 57+. There is no mean to continue.
I guess to achieve same thing on vimium, I need to install some npm packages etc etc. So at the end, keysnail2 was more extensible than vimium.
Quick fix for Vimium
The thing that annoying about behavior of vimium was not working at new tab. Later I learnt from message which is bellow.
Vimium is not running on this page.
Your browser does not run web extensions like Vimium on certain pages, usually for security reasons.
Unless your browser's developers change their policy, then unfortunately it is not possible to make Vimium (or any other web extension, for that matter) work on this page.
Chrome is not allowing to run extensions. So I downloaded new extension which opens the URL which I defined. So now everything is working well and I am able to use all features3.
