Summary

Note: To activate, press CTRL + SPACE

Genie's Lamp A Chrome extension that puts genie's lamp on any page you're on. Basically, the extension searches the page for links and buttons and makes each of those a wish (lets you "click" those using the keyboard). For example, if I had a link on the page like this:

Google Home Page

Then I could type ctrl + space, type "Goo" and that link would show up as a wish. Then I'd hit enter and I would be taken to www.google.com.

Features

  • Typing an apostrophe (') will show all the available wishes.
  • This will do simple math. Type 1 + 1 and genies lamp will show you the answer. You can also do some simple functions, like sin(34).
  • Genie's lamp does its best to know what icon to associate with a wish. It doesn't always pick up the icon and if it does sometimes it is not perfect and sometimes the styling can be funny. This is due to a limitation of trying to be as generic as possible. Please let me know of any issues you find and I'll see if I can get them worked out.

User reviews
Love this idea! One thing I'm running into is keystroke capturing with other already implemented keystroke features on a site. Can everything else get disabled while Genie is open?
