Tom Fitzsimmons showed me Conkeror while I was up in Toronto this past week. It is chrome for firefox that acts like Emacs. It features Emacs-style key bindings, including M-x and prefix arguments, numbered links, and buffer-style browsing. Developer quote from the web site: “To make sure Conkeror remains pure, I do not own a mouse.”

I’ve been using this on my laptop for the last few days. It is a bit unpolished. And, I find I do still miss tabbed browsing — but hardly anything else. It is extremely simple to install… so come on, you know you want to.

    There is also Vimperator for the vi freak, and this does support tabbed browsing.
