Vimperator rocks!

I just started using the Vimperator add-on for Firefox, and I must say that it is very cool!

For anyone who loves Vim, it makes Firefox much easier to use. It clears up lots of screen clutter and replaces it with Vim commands (e.g. :open, :addons, :preferences, etc.). It also has tab completion for bookmarks and supports bookmark keywords. For example, if you have a keyword bookmark for a Google Maps search, and you wanted to look up food around Madison, WI (where I live) you could just

:open maps food Madison, WI

You can do pretty much everything from the command line, which is awesome. I definitely have to play around with it some more. I'll post an update here if I find more cool stuff.

Also, my gratitude goes out to Andrew of Redspire for this as he brought it to my attention on Twitter.
