So it's like vimium but you have to type more?

It's a tradeoff, actually. I used to use Vimium for following links, but I made this because I feel it's a little more natural than hitting 'f' and then typing an arbitrary code next to the link you're looking at. Instead, you can just type exactly what you see immediately. It's really just a personal preference, I feel.

Plus, DeadMouse usually finds the link within the first two characters, so it's not any more typing than Vimium.

I think vimium supports that behaviour out of the box. Either it or pentadactyl (I always forget which is which when it comes to features).

And yeah, that totally makes sense. It seems snappier than vimium in a totally unscientific test as well.
