I am a vim user. I installed the vimperator add on for firefox recently. I love it. But I am stuck up with the autocomplete of urls. How do i walk through (or choose) from the list of autocomplete results?. I looked for the answer but could not find it. Can someone help me?. Thanks


Press (shift)TAB to cycle through them.


You may also want to set


That will show all the possible completions as you cycle through them.

cnoremap <C-o> <S-Tab>
cnoremap <C-i> <Tab>
" <Tab> and <S-tab> is not typing-friendly, whereas if you use left palm to press <Ctrl> 
"+ or <CapsLock> as <Ctrl>, <C-i> and <C-o> is superb for completion, and also compliant to 
"+ normal mode <C-i> <C-o> which navigate browser history, thus strength you muscle memory.

and further,

cnoremap <C-j> <Down>
cnoremap <C-k> <Up>
" if you have cmdline history 'source ~/.vimperatorrc', you could type ':' (or simply ';'
"+ if you have swap them as below says), then type 'so' then press <C-k>, which 
"+ bring your old history.  "+ this relys on an easy-typing left ctrl, too.

and more,

cnoremap <C-l> <End>
cnoremap [ <Left>
cnoremap ] <right>
cnoremap <C-n> <C-Left>
cnoremap <C-p> <C-right>
nnoremap ; :
" these keymap could be rather controversial, 
"+ you may try them out to see if they suits you or not.
