    But it’s still my number two choice behind the fantastic Tridactyl—especially with the native messaging installed. Currently running the betas from their GitHub repo. :)

    I then came across Tridactyl after a quick google search. I LOOOOOVE it. It's given me so much relief not having to use my mouse to navigate, in the past one day that I have used it.

    How much do you care? There's an open pull request you could give a little time to that would fix it by integrating a reader mode into Tridactyl here: https://github.com/tridactyl/tridactyl/pull/3306

  • Firefox lost 50M users since 2019. Why are users switching to Chrome and clones? Is this because when you visit Google and MS properties from FF, they promote their browsers via ads?

    I was a pretty avid Vimperator user (my notes on it https://fabien.benetou.fr/Tools/Vimperator ) and was sad to see it broke. I tried Pentadactyl but moved on and gave up for years. I've been using Tridactyl https://github.com/tridactyl/tridactyl/ for nearly a year now and even some things few like total hacks (apparently due to Electrolysis/XUL transition) it still does work. I can still define binding to browsing functions and the API is complete enough. I share your frustration but this seems to be the way.

    Also the developer of TridactylVim-like interface for Firefox, inspired by Vimperator/Pentadactyl", which makes browsing with your keyboard a breeze. Constant work is needed to keep features working in spite of the limitations and tightening grip which unfortunately Mozilla seems to have been placing on Firefox - somewhat mimicking Chrome and pushing power-users under the bus.
  • New to split mech kb. Getting used ergodox but wondering what r benefits of moonlander over ergodox? Does thumb cluster have all rave reviews or ergodox can do job equally well. Not a programmer but do lot of typing, application switching, use lot of mouse but hate it but wanna do away with.. Thank
    Yeah, mouseless browsing is also really import. I can also recommend Tridactyl as a great mouseless browser addon, though I'm also eyeing Nyxt as a dedicated mouseless browser, though I'm waiting for extension support.

    Sometimes I still miss pentadactyl, but tridactyl has been working well for me lately.

    Interesting, didn't hear about youtube-local before but just installed it, this is great! Thanks for sharing. I'll try it a bit longer but will probably use that from now on instead of just an autocmd with Tridactyl.

    It also remindes me of Tridactyl[0], which promises to bring vim shortcuts to firefox. I tried it for a while but found that I just enjoy using the mouse more to explore the web, even though I'm mostly a keyboard-only user on the rest of my system.
