For those wishing to ingrain Vim keys into their muscle memory, and improve their browsing experience, I recommend the Vimium[1] extension to Chrome. Additionally, Firefox has Vimperator[2] and Opera has VimOperate[3] (not as many features on the latter unfortunately).

pentadactyl is the best vim keybinding plugin for firefox now. It used to be vimperator though. Check it out http://dactyl.sourceforge.net/pentadactyl/

whats better about pentadactyl

From the Pentadactyl home page:

"Pentadactyl was once called Vimperator, initially written by Martin Stubenschrott, then developed and maintained by Doug Kearns, Kris Maglione, and several other invaluable contributors. Doug and Kris, the primary Vimperator developers for several years, have left the Vimperator project and now develop and maintain Pentadactyl in its stead."

So it's essentially the successor to Vimperator, or at least a well-maintained fork by the original authors.
