Thanks for posting this! I tried it several months ago when I just started vim and I ended up taking it out.

Now that I have some muscle memory, I just re-installed it and I love it! Using d/u to half page up/down is awesome!

I just forced myself to use a few of the shortcuts to start off with. D/U is incredibly useful. I just wish it worked on "view source" tabs.

yy is useful too. Just hit ? and it will bring up the shortcut list.

Whoa thanks! I didn't realize yy existed (haven't read the docs yet lol). Also my 2nd fav is / for searching vim style.... loving it!

Now if only they could figure out a way to use vim in text boxes like this one... there are so many times I hit esc e e or some other Vim command.

Yeah ineed! I'm waiting for a Mac app that can control other programs with vim-style keystrokes just like this!
