How the Web Looks to Me

It feels like I’ve tried to field the question about how I can use the web without using a mouse (or trackpad or equivalent), without “pointing”, multiple times in the last couple of weeks. The answer is quite visual so I thought I’d share. This is how the web looks to me:

I navigate the web using the Keyboard Navigation extension in Google Chrome, which is what is adding all the little labels you see in the screenshot above. Install the extension, and press comma. The labels will pop up, then you type whichever character(s) show next to the thing you want to “click” on, and off you go.

It’s super-simple, and easier to use than I expected. Why don’t you try it out on your own sites? You’ll get a sense of how the web looks from where I’m standing :)
