VI geeks on the Gmail team

Looks like Google let their VI geeks loose on the Gmail product. Not only do they have the VI direction keys like “j” and “k” implemented, they’ve even implemented two-letter VI-like combinations, such as “g” “i” for “go” “inbox”.

Will this finally be the impetus for people for people to realize that the keyboard is a useful way to navigate web pages? (Today I saw a guy working on a computer who evidently didn’t know that the tab key would get him from field to field in the form he was entering.) Unfortunately, Google has implemented keyboard control with a bizarre-o Active X control, which prevents you from seeing the source of the page, scripting it, or anything else, not to mention being highly browser-specific.
