In Konqueror, if I press the Ctrl key, I get boxes with letters in them for every link and button on the page:

Konqueror with access links

I believe this is called an "access key", but it is done without the original webpage having a ton of access key attributes. Konqueror just creates access keys for all the links.

How can I enable similar behavior in Chrome, either natively or with an add-on?

I found something! Vimium for Chrome.

"Vimium is a Google Chrome extension which provides keyboard shortcuts for navigation and control in the spirit of the Vim editor."
