Does anyone know of an extension for Google Chrome that puts numbers (1-99) next to each link like the "Mouseless Browsing" add-on for Firefox that allows you to select links with the keyboard?

I don't use a keyboard. In Firefox I can just say a number to navigate links. I wish I could do it in Chrome.

  • If you're on Windows, have you tried the native voice commands? – dnbrv Apr 23 '12 at 13:10

first result for "keyboard navigation" in the chrome-extension-store yields ... "keyboard navigation":

The Keyboard Navigation extension allows you to browse the web without using a mouse.

How it works: 1) Press the comma key (,) to start. This will show hints for every link, textbox ... 2) Type a hint. If you typed correctly, the hint will be highlighted. 3) Press Enter or Return to "click" on the highlighted element.

enter image description here

if you want control your chrome with your voice only (something i can only assume since you don't make that idiot-proof-clear), maybe something like http://www.chromevoicecontrol.com/index.html could be used in combination with "keyboard navigation".

  • he said that he does not use a keyboard... so I think he's looking for a speech extension – Marcx Apr 23 '12 at 7:52
  • his first paragraph states that he wants something like the mouseless-addon from firefox .. "that allows you to select links with the keyboard". when OP wants to combine speach-control with whatever the browser displays .. fine, he should mention it / highlight that aspect of the question a bit more, eg 'i want to navigate my chrome by voice'. – akira Apr 23 '12 at 7:57
  • don't you have read the content then? :P the PS (post scriptum) states that he did not use a keyboard so probably he's looking for a speech extension... anyway I can agree with you that it will be more appropriate if it's on the title or on the first paragraph ;) – Marcx Apr 23 '12 at 8:37
  • @Marcx: i did read the PS, as stated in my comment on the question i just don't understand it's meaning and relevance to the question by reading it. – akira Apr 23 '12 at 9:54

The one you probably want is Vimium.


cVim is my absolute favourite.
