Google Search Vi

Hey everyone, check out Google Experimental. The last experiment available, Keyboard Shortcuts, makes Google Search act like vi. It's great. Move up and down with J and K, open a link with O, search with /, and switch modes with Escape. Very cool.

Afaik they've been offering this for about a year already. Nonetheless it's definitely a great feature and can speed up browsing the search results significantly.

You seem to be a vi/m fan. Have you ever tried vimperator? It's addon for firefox which "vimifies" your web experience.
