Yah, very cool idea to implement...but it sounds utter garbage in the ear. Please contact with a musician and maybe google "the most used keys on keyboard". and do it scientifically...that would be nice. I was constantly thinking how this make sense...then suddenly popped up in my head "abcdef..."...which doesn't work not musically(piano tiling in a way like zxcvbnm are an octave that works), not even literally(like "E" is the most used letter, google it, then E should be C that works) so please do some changes, really cool idea.

Doesn't work even with all permissions given to it. (and yes it was enabled) this was from the brave web browser btw.
