link search navigation for Chrome
A quick-and-dirty implementation of link search navigation for Chrome. It basically is meant to replicate Firefox's "Quick Find" feature.
If you are a power user looking for a keyboard shortcut for convenient navigation, or are an advanced Firefox user who wants to bring a favorite feature to Chrome, this shortcut is for you.
What it does is it allows the user to open up a search bar that searches the links on a given page, enabling navigation to the currently highlighted link.
In short, it's like Ctrl-F, but only on links, while also allowing the user to follow them by pressing "Enter" without closing the search bar.
How to use this extension is as follows:
- Press ' to start searching.
- Type some text in the search bar to highlight a link.
- Press Esc to stop or Enter/Ctrl-Enter to follow it.
- Press F2 to continue where you left off, as well as to cycle through results.
This extension is free and will not track you. In fact, it is free and open source. Feel free to check out the source code at the site below if you are interested in reading it.
