Do we have a Vimperator style extension for Safari 5?

share|improve this question

Not really. I've been hoping for a good one, but I keep coming back to Firefox and Pentadactyl, a Vimperator fork.

Safari does have Vimlike and Vim Keybindings, but Vimperator and Pentadactyl are miles ahead in terms of features. If all you're looking for is Vim-style movement and the ability to follow links from the keyboard, those should do the trick, but I miss a lot of the deeper features that Pentadactyl offers: javascript evaluation, quicklinks, ability to yank links from the keyboard, and much, much more.

Vimari also offers some of the keyboard shortcuts from Pentadactyl.

An old question, but it seems that the plugin sVim does a decent job now.

Have a Look at: It's similar to cVim for Chrome.
