I stumbled into this Firefox gem today: Vimperator. It makes your Firefox behaves like the venerable VI/VIM editor. Warning: if you are not a VI/VIM guy, don’t even try this. It will cause you grief. For VI/VIM aficionados like me, this is almost like the best thing since sliced bread, or, VI.
A couple of things that are important:
2. o or t can be used to open a URL. If you just type in a word or words, it will present you with a search results based on those word(s) by your default search engine.
For friends who are interested: I am doing well. I have opened up my own company, currently doing consulting/training gigs on Sql Server, Oracle, MySQL and such. I expect to return to blogging, hopefully soon. Vimperator got me excited so I decided to give it a little plug and say hi to all my readers.

too cool, man – if only IE would add this functionality…
how many times I have caught myself typing jjjjjjj in IE.
I still need to remember to turn off Vimperator keyboard binding in GMail. Overall I have been happy with Vimperator so far.
