Usage

Settings

Command Prefix - Modifier key to hold down with your action key. If you leave it blank you don't need to hold down anything (default setting).

Excluded URLs - Comma separated list of website URLs you don't want to use vimari with. To exclude GitHub for example, provide the value github.com or http://github.com. It's smart and should handle all possible domain cases.

Link Hint Characters - Allowed characters to be used when generating link shortcuts.

Extra detection by cursor style - Detect clickable links by looking for HTML elements having cursor style set to "pointer".

Scroll Size - How much each scroll will move on the page.
