I found an issue that commands NMap / IMap / Alias doesn't work with version 0.6.2. thank you for your report.

Because of the above issue, currently there's no way to add alias by using command mode.(to use 'key mapping / alias setting' is the only way).

I will fix the issue ASAP and release the bug-fixed version(maybe 0.6.3).
From version 0.6.3, you can use a command Alias in command mode like the following:

Alias og Open http://www.google.com

In the above example, you can open google.com by inputting og in command mode.
( see also https://github.com/k2nr/ViChrome/wiki/Vichrome-User-Manual#wiki-Alias )
Note that aliases defined by the command Alias are only available for temporary usage. So the aliases removed by rebooting Chrome or reloading Vichrome extension.
Anyway, please wait for the next release.
