comment Make VIM normal-mode cursor sit between characters instead of on them
@Owen Happy to hear that and thanks for the accept! :) I think you mean ino <Esc> <Right><Esc> and that's an excellent solution idea - I incorporated it into my answer!

comment Make VIM normal-mode cursor sit between characters instead of on them
@Owen yes, this is kind of embarrassing - I didn't test it with vim -u NONE myself. v_v The reason for my vim's behaviour is the option 'selection'=e‌​xclusive, which is default only under Windows (set by mswin.vim). I integrated this into my answer, too.

@Owen yup, definitely same thing. The behaviour you describe is odd and certainly not intended - have you checked your mappings? You can run a vim instance without any scripts with vim -u NONE

Regarding {…}, indeed even indentation is discarded with vi{. You could va{ instead, but that also consumes the braces. The J command may be your (post)fix of choice here. It performs a line Join. You could :map it into your preferred use[s] of i{/a{.

dw and vwd do the same for me within a line. On a line's last word they are different, which seems useful to me. There, you could replicate dw's behaviour with ved. cw act different to what one might expect (it acts like ce instead of dwi), but a fix is offered in :help cw.
