IV.Vimium for keyboard-based navigation

Vimium is a browser extension that provides keyboard-based navigation and control of the web in the spirit of the Vim editor:

For advanced usage, see regular expressions on the wiki.

Navigating your history:

L       go forward in history

Manipulating tabs:

J, gT   go one tab left

^       visit the previously-visited tab
t       create tab
yt      duplicate current tab
x       close current tab
X       restore closed tab (i.e. unwind the 'x' command)
T       search through your open tabs
W       move current tab to new window
<a-p>   pin/unpin current tab

Using marks:

ma, mA  set local mark "a" (global mark "A")
`a, `A  jump to local mark "a" (global mark "A")
``      jump back to the position before the previous jump
          -- that is, before the previous gg, G, n, N, / or `a

Additional advanced browsing commands:

How back from url address bar to site? Press F6 works for me. You can get some information here:

V. Tweak New Twitter

Removes algorithmic content from Twitter, hides news & trends, lets you control which shared tweets appear on your timeline, and adds other UI improvements.

VI. Reader view text and reading aloud

Reader View strips away all the buttons, ads and background images, and changes the page’s text size, contrast and layout.

Besides, you can have Firefox read an article out loud in Reader View.

In Kali Linux, the default voice as well as the alternative voices are difficult to understand and I have set the festival voice as default on Firefox. It is much better but it doesn’t seem so good as the default voices in Mac. You can learn how to change the default Text To Speech voice here:
