I tried this a long time ago but didn't like it. All I wan't is vi keybindings to every text input. HALP?

I'm with tgoe. I use Vim religiously as an editor and can honestly no longer stand any other editor unless they have optional Vim bindings. That said, I tried Vimperator and found it both very unintuitive and a bit distracting. I really didn't find any benefits using it, and in fact, 9/10 times it just made things more difficult.

I just downloaded the plugin now and I actually like it a fair bit. It does appear a bit limited when it comes to dealing with text input, which is stupid because Isn't that the whole point of getting a vim plugin? haha. I do really like being able to select page elements without using my mouse and I think I'll keep it for that reason

@Tgoe
ctrl + i will open a text editor to external editing. Sounds like a round about way of doing it but It works. get an input field, hit ctrl+i and gvim is open, type your text and ZZ.
text field on page is updated and is active, so you can tab to the next one or go visual mode or whatever and ;; then select the next input field you want
