Your Input Matters
The "Gridify" extension is a keyboard-only link and input area selector. This extension aims to remove the mouse or keypad frequent usage when dealing with selecting an element on the active view. When the extension gets activated by the toolbar (browser action) button, it injects a visual grid into the active view. You can use 1-9 keys to let the extension extends its grid view into that particular section of the view. This page division continuous until there is a single clickable element on the area. At this point, the extension brings the focus to the element, and you can browse it with the "Enter" key or start typing on the input or "textarea" field. Usually, it takes up to 3 keyboard strokes to select any link, even on complex pages. If you need to go one step up to select another area, use the "delete" or "backspace" keys.



  1. What is the "Gridify - Keyboard Link Selector" extension and how does it work?

    This extension uses grid-view to select a link or input element as an alternative to the methods simulating Vim behavior like Vimium or other similar extensions. The idea is to split the current view into easily selectable segments until the area most likely has one clickable element on it. Since most websites are mouse-friendly, the links have enough spacing that using up to 3 divisions is enough to uniquely select an element on the page. This extension uses 1-9 keys to select an area and "Backspace" or "Delete" keys to navigate one step up. Pressing anything else or using mouse clicks causes the extension to get diactivated.

  3. How can I activate the extension without using mouse?

    On Chrome browser, goto "chrome://extensions/shortcuts" and set a shortcut of the extension. On Firefox browser open "Add-ons manager", click on the gear button and select "Manage Extension Shortcuts" to configure a custom shortcut for this extension.

  4. Sometimes I select a wrong sub-grid, and I would like to move one step up to change my selection. Is it possible?

    Yes, this extension supports moving one step up by pressing the "Delete" or "Backspace" keys.

  5. What does happen when the Gridify extension finds a unique link or input element?

    The extension first tries to move the focus to this element. On successful operation, the extension exits the selection mode. If the element does not accept focus, however, the extension tries to click on it and then exits the selection mode. When a link is focused, you can press the "Enter" key to ask your browser to navigate the link.

  6. I am trying to use this extension on a page with lots of links. It is pretty hard to select links on a crowded area of the page. Is there any workaround?

    When there are many links in a grid area, it is recommended to use "Ctrl +" or "Command +" key combinations to zoom the page and reduce link density per area. Then use this extension to select a region. You can use "Ctrl -" or "Command -" to reduce the zoom after link selection is over.
