Clicking and Link Hints

This tutorial uses the default profile's keybindings.

Browsing the web normally involves moving your mouse to select something, then clicking to activate it. Saka Key lets you use your keyboard to quickly identify and click things on screen. You can use this feature to follow links, focus text inputs, toggle checkboxes, and more.

To get started, type ff (press f twice). Link Hints will appear next to all clickable elments on screen.

Each link hint contains a unique sequence of letters. Type the letters of a link hint to activate it. As you type, link hints will be filtered out until only one is left. For example typing s filters out all link hints that don't start with s.

If you typed d in the image above, you would follow the link named Javascript Commands.

To abort link activation, press Escape or f or any key that doesn't appear in any link hint.
