[Advanced Tips]



nmap tw :OpenNewTab http://www.twitter.com
nmap gr :OpenNewTab http://www.google.co.jp/reader
nmap m :OpenNewTab https://mail.google.com/mail/#inbox

This example is a part of my own settings.I'm using key for launcher prefix key. this offers you very quick access to your favorite web sites.



nmap F :GoFMode --newtab --continuous

By default, F is assigned to ":GoFMode --newtab". When you intend to use f-Mode with "--newtab" , you may want to open 2 or more links with new tabs continuously.This example offers you surprisingly efficient way for that. Continuous f-Mode will not exit by hitting a hint so you can continuously open many links.



alias ext OpenNewTab chrome://extensions/
alias option OpenNewTab chrome://settings/browser

If your key setting is filled up with your customization so you can't add new key setting, Alias is a very meaningful solution.In this example you can open Chrome's extension page by executing a command :ext and open chrome's setting page with :option

[Future Release Plan]
since Vichrome is too young, There may be lacking in functionality and is being under
very active development.So here's some of the release plan.
* a command to launch chrome apps

Also, if you have any requests I'll implement it.
