GleeBox – freeware lets you ditch the mouse and use the keyboard for browsing

GleeBox is a Firefox or Chrome add-on which lets you navigate with your web browser using the keyboard rather than a mouse. If you’re one of those kick-back, leisurely type surfers you may appreciate the ability to arrow key your way around the Web. Just press g to activate and a page search bar appears, which makes for slightly faster searches than the Firefox CTRL-F combo. There’s a bunch of other stuff you can do with the tool, see the video.

 gleeBox is an experimental project that takes a keyboard-centric approach to navigating the web. It provides alternatives to actions that are traditionally performed via the mouse. Some of these are radically more efficient than using a mouse, some not so much. In all cases, they are mostly meant for keyboard and command line lovers.
