Probably over the top, but I thought I'd ask. :)

    What about evil-mode users :) ?

  • I'm intrigued by this idea, and curious as to what other actions you might envision... Note that we do have keyboard commands, though the default bindings are probably not to your liking.

    Conkerer (conkeror.org) is a pretty cool mozilla plugin that gives you Emacs bindings. But my most egregious oversight is that with Emacs 24.4 and eww Emacs users get Emacs bindings out of the box. ;) Oct 16, 2014 at 15:54

  • @Vamsi: They can go straight back to the pit that spawned them. :-) (I say as I wish I could use evil-mode instead of viper, but company policy prohibits installing non-approved GPL code). Though I do use vi emulation in emacs sometimes, I still know how to run emacs without it. Sep 1, 2015 at 11:59
  • I'd like emacs bindings in text boxes: Ctrl-A for beginning-of-line, Ctrl-E for end-of-line, etc. Sep 1, 2015 at 12:01
  • Just discovered the firemacs plugin for Firefox. Now I've got emacs bindings in text boxes. Sweet! Sep 1, 2015 at 12:10
  • @TreborRude you can also simply switch to OS X, and then you get Emacs keybindings in every text field across the whole OS!

I think an official Greasemonkey or Keysnail script with this sort of functionality would be a great idea.

    +1, that really sounds like something that would be best done client-side and tweakable by each user.

Clever idea but would likely just be very intrusive. I would imagine that many other users are like myself and already have C-n and other bindings being used on the OS or browser level.

    It doesn't need to be activated by default.
