Custom Key Mappings
You may remap or unmap any of the default key bindings in the "Key mappings" section under "Advanced Options" on the options page.
Enter one of the following key mapping commands per line:
map key command: Maps a key to a Vimium command. Overrides Chrome's default behavior (if any).
unmap key: Unmaps a key and restores Chrome's default behavior (if any).
unmapAll: Unmaps all bindings. This is useful if you want to completely wipe Vimium's defaults and start from scratch with your own setup.
map <c-d> scrollPageDown maps ctrl+d to scrolling the page down. Chrome's default behavior of bringing up a bookmark dialog is suppressed.
map r reload maps the r key to reloading the page.
unmap <c-d> removes any mapping for ctrl+d and restores Chrome's default behavior.
unmap r removes any mapping for the r key.
Available Vimium commands can be found via the "Show Available Commands" link near the key mapping box. The command name appears to the right of the description in parenthesis.
You can add comments to your key mappings by starting a line with " or #.
The following special keys are available for mapping:
<c-*>, <a-*>, <m-*> for ctrl, alt, and meta (command on Mac) respectively with any key. Replace * with the key of choice.
<left>, <right>, <up>, <down> for the arrow keys
<f1> through <f12> for the function keys
Shifts are automatically detected so, for example, <c-&> corresponds to ctrl+shift+7 on an English keyboard.
