Vimprobable – A WWW browser based on webkit with keybindings

Sponsored Link
Vimprobable is a web browser that behaves like the Vimperator plugin available for Mozilla Firefox. It is based on the WebKit engine (using GTK bindings). The goal of Vimprobable is to build a completely keyboard-driven, efficient and pleasurable browsing-experience. Its featureset might be considered "minimalistic", but not as minimalistic as being completely featureless.

Vimprobable is a WWW browser that is build around the webkit library. Vimprobable is fast. Vimprobable comes without buttons and other graphic widgets. It is aimed at being controlled as mouselessly as possible. It uses keybindings that are inspired by Vim, the great editor.

Just like Vim, moving through a webpage can be done by entering commands by the keyboard. Most of these commands require just one or two keystrokes.

Vimprobable mimics the ex-commandmode of Vim. By entering a colon (:) commands like open, set and map can be entered.
