- by Firefox user 13864896, 3 years agoRated 5 out of 5Really promising add-on, already has many features that were lacking in Vimium that had always annoyed me.
Love how customisable it is, from keybindings to the colour of the hints.
Some features that it would need to make me switch fully over from Vimium:
-bookmarks and history bar (the existing tab bar looks great so I think these will be good)
- ability to disable specific keys on certain websites, or at least integrate with a page's existing keyboard shortcuts.
I see these are already on the upcoming feature list, how exciting. This could be huge. Definitely has the potential to be far better than Vimium when it is fully operational.

browsing A-page and scroll down
click a link to B-page
browsing B-page and go back to A-page by click 'back' left-arrow icon.
When return to A-page, HOWEVER, top of A-page displays, scroll position before is not resumed.
- by Mirzhan Irkegulov, 3 years agoRated 5 out of 5If you've used VimFx and don't know which Vim-like addon to switch to, use Saka Key, full stop.
Unfortunately the author is busy and needs a new maintainer (https://github.com/lusakasa/saka-key/issues/171). This project is great and deserves further progress.
- by Firefox user 13590256, 4 years agoRated 3 out of 5Saka Key is okay, but I am rating it 3 out of 5 admittedly not on its own merit (which I hope developers may forgive me for) but because compared to VimFX, my preferred extension before Firefox 57 arrived, Saka Key lacks in certain areas:
1. The escape combination (to be able to transparently forward all keystrokes to the web page) has to be re-typed every time you switch focus back to the tab where you need to escape keystrokes again. This is very inconvenient, and combined with the next lack-of-feature on the list, makes for a truly irritating experience for pages where you need to disable Saka Key temporarily through escaping.
2. There is no way to blacklist certain URLs -- Saka Key is either enabled for your entire browser or not at all. Since keystroke escaping described above does not persist between even switching tabs, this really hurts.
Other than that, Saka Key does just what it says it does. But since it is a fresh start with Web Extensions API, I understand it's not there yet. It's not authors fault they have VimFX to compare to :) Best of luck, Saka Key!
- by Firefox user 13577668, 4 years agoRated 5 out of 5Good addons. It works fine and it is easy to use. You can customize all commands; this function is very usefult because I want to simulate VIM's keybindings in Firefox. This addon can speed up your productivity using only the keyboard!
- by Jamasp, 4 years agoRated 4 out of 5Best keyboard-based addon I've found, now the vimFx is unavailable.
But there is still some work to do. (I wish I could contribute, but I'm not a developer).
One Important thing is the "Activate clipboard" feature. It is just opening Google search page and that's totally annoying, especially for me as someone who does not use google search at all.
One thing that would be good if it'd be implemented is that little hint at the bottom right corner of the page in vimFx that shows the currently triggered keys. Another thing I would be glad if implemented is the visual clue to know whether the addon is activated in current page or not, like vimFx icon in toolbar did so.
Oh. One of the most needed features for me is the "find mode" that is completely missing.
Wish you the best and appreciate the work.
- by liangbobo, 4 years agoRated 4 out of 5It's quite a great addon that ease my trouble after VimFx is unavailable. Even sometimes it's better.
But I wonder if I can use Saka to open link in current page?
Command "Open Link" in Saka is just like a single left-click, and website itself decides how to open a link( current, new background or new foreground). Am I right about this?
I really want to open links the way I actually want( current, new background or new foreground). Is it limitted by ver.57? I am looking forward to your reply.
- by Firefox user 12431269, 4 years agoRated 5 out of 5Great extension to use in FF 57 instead of VimFX. Tried trydactil and vim-vixen - they both are a bit raw, but this one is close to perfect, it has all features (that I used) that VimFX has and even more. Highly configurable.
- by Firefox user 13464842, 4 years agoRated 1 out of 5Really glad there is something like Saka Key and Saka after VimFX... I think, with improvement, they will be one of my "need to have it" addons!
However I must poit out that some keybindings are not working (I'm using FF 57 on linux).
Ones I've noticed are:
"Download link" and "Toggle Saka"!! They simply don't do anything.
"Activate Clipboard in Current Tab" and Activate Clipboard in Foreground Tab" - constantly open google search, no matter what my clipboard content is. Plus, I don't even use google search in any way.
Also when using "Open link", "Open link in background"... and when I have a lot of tabs open, it would be useful that new tab opens next to the tab from which I've evoked this action, instead of placing it at the end of currently opened tabs as the last tab.
With the current setup it's harder to find the original tab again and I have to go through all of the tabs searching for it or searching it with Saka... instead of simply going back to the previous tab.
Also, when closing that newly opened tab it would be nice to return back to the tab from which I've opened it... like FF does by default instead of taking the focus to the last tab.
Also it would be useful to have the option to open new tab right next to the one I'm currently on.
I hope Saka and Saka key will only continue to improve.
So, thank you for the efforts.
I might have talked too soon :(
Saka keys is now causing Firefox to stop responding...
