vimprobable has been mentioned in the comments of this blog before. It’s a fast webkit-based browser navigated mainly with vi bindings based originally on vimperator.
I’ve had it packaged for a while now, but it had a few bugs keeping me from evangelizing it. The worst was that, frequently, clicking on an input field would not enable insert mode, and thereafter switching to insert mode seemed impossible. That is now fixed, and I see no remaining nuisances.
So, I believe the package is ready for use. It ships with an apparmor profile, and I use this config
set homepage=file:///home/serge/homepage.html set plugins=false set scripts=false set java=false set images=true set caret=true set proxy=false map <C-p>=:set plugins=true map <C-s>=:set scripts=true map <C-j>=:set java=true set defaultsearch=d
At this point, I use pentadactyl (firefox) to watch tv and for launchpad and wiki interaction. That’s because ctrl-I brings a text field up in gvim, which is just too handy, and I’ve not coded that for vimprobable. But I use vimprobable for everything else.
