Use your Keyboard to open links in a webpage by typing without using your mouse

Post by Admin on Wed Jul 18, 2012 12:44 pm

Some people hate to use their mouse while browsing the internet. They
prefer to use the keyboard as it is easier and more professional. Power
users and keyboard ninjas who absolutely hate it when they have to take
their hands off the keyboard should try Dead Mouse.
This is a new Google Chrome extension that lets you click and open any
link on a web page by typing a few characters that are in the anchor
text of the link.

Once you have installed the extension from the Chrome Web store, type a
few characters and the first matching link on the page will begin to
wiggle (see the animation below). Hit the Enter key to follow that link
or press Shift+Enter to open the target web page in a new tab.




If there are multiple hyperlinks on a page that match your typed text,
you can easily cycle through the matching links by pressing the Tab key
(or press Shift+Tab to cycle in reverse direction). And you can cancel
the search mode by hitting the Escape key on your keyboard.

There are no settings to configure but the extension may not play nicely
with websites like Twitter or Gmail as they have their own keyboard
shortcuts.
Mouseless Browsing in Firefox

If you are on Firefox, you don’t really need any add-ons to open links
from the keyboard. Press the “/” (slash) key and type the link text –
the first matching link will be highlighted and you can press the Enter
key to follow that link.
