Description Corey 2010-05-25 07:31:28 UTC
Version:           0.4.0 (using KDE 4.4.3) 
OS:                Linux

There's a possibly somewhat obscure feature that I really love in konqueror -- the ability to scroll down with the 'j' key, and up with the 'k' key, ala vim.

This appears to be built-in on konqueror, but I see no reason why it couldn't at least be a shortcuts configuration. 

However implemented, it's really nice because it keeps my fingers from moving off the keyboard home row while I scan/read/skim through web pages - it'd be great if rekonq could provide this same, albeit arguably minor, bit of convenience!

Thanks, and kind regards to the developers - rekonq is quickly becoming my preferred browser of choice!

Reproducible: Didn't try
Comment 1 Corey 2010-05-25 07:33:46 UTC
(I guess if j/k is implemented for scroll page up/down; then perhaps h/l can also be used for scroll page left/right - again, ala vi keybindings)
Comment 2 Thomas Murach 2011-05-06 19:33:27 UTC
Is this still wanted? If so, I could implement this. I'll wait for your replies.
Best regards,
Comment 3 eternalfuzzy1 2011-05-09 21:15:43 UTC
I would still appreciate this feature.

I also miss this great Konqueror feature in Rekonq.
Comment 5 Thomas Murach 2011-05-16 13:20:13 UTC
Alright, I'll see what I can do!

These are not configurable shortcuts, judging by the commit diff?

Revert vi-like shortcuts implementation

In fact, until we have one way to understand if a widget (eg: a
lineedit or a textarea) steals the focus before, this feature will
break their usage.

The bug should be reopened now that you reverted the fix, no?

Fix vi-like navigation shortcuts

This patch introduces a check on input/textarea elements to be sure
we are NOT stealing focus there.. ;)
It also introduces a check to let the feature being optional (just to
be completely sure... )

Davor, the fix is for master, hence 0.9. At least you can expect it for a bugfix release, (0.8.1, 0.8.2), but it's obvious it cannot work in your running 0.8. I don't know how I can explain this...
Comment 13 Davor Cubranic 2012-01-31 14:23:16 UTC
Sorry, I thought 0.8 came out after the fix was released.
