Summary

Keyboard Surfing provides a keyboard-controlled pointer on web pages, to avoid using a mouse for web browsing. Keyboard shortcuts for navigation are arranged like the common arrow keys.

No ads, no spyware.

The pointer can be moved to nearby links by pressing the up, down, left and right keys. Keyboard Surfing automatically selects nearby links on the page.

Three sets of shortcut keys are provided for navigation and control: the numpad set, the left-hand set and the right-hand set.

Additional functions include: smooth scrolling, open links in new tab and in new window, close windows and tabs, go to homepage.

NOTE Chrome has some alarmist messaging around the permissions that Keyboard Surfing needs to run. Don't be alarmed. Keyboard Surfing needs to inspect every page you visit (to find links), therefore it must be able to read all the pages you visit. Keyboard Surfing needs to inject a few elements into web pages (the javascript code, the cursor, the red box and the help screen). Any other parts of the visited page will remain unmodified. Keyboard Surfing does not log, store, or transmit to anyone any of your data or the data about web pages you visit. Keyboard Surfing does not send any data at all.

NOTE

  • Press 'Pause' key on keyboard to enable or disable this extension.
  • This extension is available for Chrome and Firefox browsers.
