    Hey everyone,

    I just installed the PB on my Mid 2013 11" MBA and Yosemite is running very nicely. I've been using Chrome for a very long time, but the new version of Safari really impresses me and I might use it on a daily basis from now on. However, there's one important plugin that I really fell in love with: vimium. It emulates the keybindings from vim so that you can browse the web with the help of a few basic keystrokes.
    I know that there are some similar extensions for Safari out there, but has anyone of you seen an extension that's compatible to the latest Safari version? Vimarium doesn't seem to be updated yet and hasn't seen any developer activity recently.

    Thanks in advance!

    I've been looking for this too. Ever since I used Pentadactyl in Firefox, I feel using a browser any other way is way too slow. I love my vim keybindings, and I can navigate in a browser so quickly with it.

    I have vimari and I think that's what you mean, and despite it being not updated, it works works fine but it's just too limited (no shortcut for opening new tab for instance), doesn't come close to the sheer power of Pentadactyl.

    But vimari is not too bad of a plugin and Safari 8 is just so good, I can live with it.

    Apart from the fact that vimarium only offers half of the features as vimium or other extensions, it doesn't seem to work at all on my Safari. Too bad that there doesn't seem to be an extension for that at the moment. :(
