Type-To-Navigate 1.0.7

Download Type-To-Navigate

Keep your hands on the keyboard while browsing the web. Type any text that occurs inside a link, and hit return to follow it. ⌘G jumps to the next link containing the text, and ⌘⇧G jumps to the previous. Hit ESC to cancel or exit a focused field.

Version History

  • 1.0.7 - Added blacklist.
  • 1.0.4 - Icons. Fixed issue where a hidden link could be selected.
  • 1.0.3 - Instapaper support! Use ⌘I to copy the URL of the focused link. Also now firing mouseover events for focused links.
  • 1.0.2 - Excluded Google Reader until a I can make a proper blacklist. Now waiting to popup/focus until the second character typed. Also ignoring long strings of identical chars, and those comprised completely of J & K (for j/k style navigation). Added ⌘C to copy the URL of the focused link.
  • 1.0.1 - Moved to Github, removed old (unused) userscript update code.
  • 1.00 - Initial public release.

Invisible Status Bar 1.20

Download Invisible Status Bar

Save display space or appeal to your own sense of minimalism by hiding Safari's native status bar, and using the Invisible Status Bar instead. Only shows up when you hover over a link, i.e. when you need a status bar.
