I like to use the CTRL-O and CTRL-I keys to move around. The problem is that it quickly fills up with small movements like moving by paragraph with }/{ or moving by sentence with )/( . Is there a way to not have those keys affect the navigation history?

To avoid changes to the jump list, :keepjumps can be used. You have to overload any movement command with a mapping, like this:

:nnoremap <silent> } :<C-u>execute 'keepjumps normal!' v:count1 . '}'<CR>
