Keys for Safari lets users browse the web without reaching for a mouse or trackpad. It differs from other mouseless navigation extensions in that it attempts to render keys stylishly on the page to improve the user experience. Specifically, it generates floating gibberish sparingly and prefers to use text already on the page as a key.
- Click away, scroll away, or press escape to deactivate
- Customizable activation key
- Funcitonal backspace

G to generate & render shortcut keys. Type any key to click.

Excellent app

Works flawlessly. Simple and convenient for any poweruser.

One funciton missing and one feature missing; abbility to customize hotkey to generate shortcuts, and ability to either open in current window or open in seperate window (ie key jump keyboard navigation on chrome allows for , to generate shortcuts and . to generate shortcuts that would open in seperate window).

Glad you liked the app! 🙂 Actually, it *is* possible to customize the key used to generate shortcuts from within the containing app. The keycap in the center of the app is actually a text field. Simply highlight the keycap’s letter with your mouse then type the key you’d like to use. With respect to the ability to open links in background tabs, download linked files, open links in new window, etc. they’re all features I’m considering. Someone on Reddit asked for the same thing. I’m hesitant for a few reasons. I wouldn’t want the app to become so bloated with features that it becomes hard for me to maintain. It’d be a complexity that’d have to be explained to users somewhere. I don’t think most people would use it frequently. Point taken though. Thanks for taking the time to leave a review!

Happy that this functionality can now be had in Safari.

It's sad that the change of extension policies has killed off most development for this browser. Thank you!

I’m glad you liked the app! I agree that it’s a shame more people aren’t in this space. I may publish a YouTube tutorial one day demoing how to make a Safari app extension from start to finish.

Love this app

Finally, someone made someting like GleeBox again.

This app helps my RSI by allowing me to use the mouse less.
