Unfortunately this doesn't work well with ServiceNow. With the Polaris UI it's blocking typing in shortcut keys into search fields, by default that's '.' and ',', so quite annoying.

Works great. I don't need the added complexity of vimium (and it conflicts with a lot of native shortcuts on websites like GitHub), so this is perfect. My only request would be allowing configuration of the characters used for hints, but even as it stands with the right QMK configuration one-handed navigation is a breeze.

Love the extension, truly a timesaver! One small QOL improvement\/recommendation: on pages with a limited (but more than 10 links), prioritize numberings of numbers that are physically proximate on the keyboard (i.e, single digits first, then 11, 12, 13, 21, 22, 23, 24). It's much harder to shortcut to 10, 20, 19, 28 etc because the keys are far apart! Otherwise, one of my new favorite chrome extensions!
