- by Marcel Samyn, 3 years agoRated 5 out of 5Wonderful extension! Works well and new cool features keep getting added.
Too bad some features don't work (well) because of WebExtension limitations but things can only get better ;)
- by Firefox user 14000582, 3 years agoRated 5 out of 5The extension is well-written and works pretty well! There are a few bugs, but nothing significant, and development is active and focused.
I would appreciate a little more documentation on the various features though.
Nonetheless, an essential addition to firefox!
- by Firefox user 13988718, 3 years agoRated 5 out of 5This is awesome addon that takes place of pentadactyl/vimperator and such.
It still under heavy development but it already useful and moves in a right direction.
The road the developers take is to make it more like vimperator rather pentadactyl somewhy, given the name is closer to penta :) But nevertheless it awesome.
- by ssamm45, 3 years agoRated 5 out of 5It's amazing how much faster it is to work with only the keyboard. This plugin along with the dwm window manager and the vis text editor mean I rarely have to use my mouse for normal tasks. The native client was just released in beta and it unlocks even more possibilities. I can use an external for thoes times I need to write larger pieces of text or code in browser, filter urls through a shell script, etc.
- by Palpatine, 3 years agoRated 4 out of 5Best vimperator on webextension for now. Too bad webextension is so restrictive. I always preferred firefox over chrome because chrome had such restrictive plugin api, and vimperator/pendactyl on firefox was so much nicer. Then google products got bloated and could only be run with chrome js engine with any speed. Now that firefox is catching up on the js engine front the plugin api regressed to chrome level. unbelievable! I hope things can be improved eventually. Also please allow tridactyl a configuration file. If not local file at least do gist or something!
- by Firefox user 12411271, 4 years agoRated 4 out of 5I like this extension and most I find most of the things I need. Some things I am still missing like searching through bookmarks, but overall, I am having a good experience.
- by Firefox user 13895994, 4 years agoRated 2 out of 5Overrides the homepage and there is no configuration. Otherwise It's alright I guess
Developer responseposted 4 years agoSorry about the new tab page; we change it so that we can inject our scripts into that page. You can change it with `set newtab [url]`.
There are quite a few configuration options available; I count about 20 odd different things you can change. Just `:viewconfig` and then `:set key1.key2.key3 value`, e.g. `:set nmaps.\ fillcmdline open scholar`. `:help` and `:tutor` should give you a better of what's possible.
Is any option in particular that you would like to change but cannot?
- by Chris Pinkus, 4 years agoRated 5 out of 5I am a long-time pentadactyl user, and was forced to stick with ESR and other 'old' versions of firefox just to keep that addon. I eventually got fed up with doing that last month, so I tried every addon that adds vim-like bindings, only to find that they all suck compared to pentadactyl.
However, I just tried this addon today and it's the closest thing to pentadactyl I've seen so far. I am definitely a fan, and I hope the developers of this addon keeps us pentadactyl users in mind :)
Really amazing work, keep up the good job!
- by tivasyk, 4 years agoRated 1 out of 51) the plugin sets your home page without asking you ― haven't seen this behaviour in a long time, and certainly not in opensource world;
2) doesn't work on some sites (many of those, actually);
3) no easy access to settings;
4) no whitelist.
for a plugin that is expected to _enhance_ my user experience that's a _fail_ in my book.
