Firenvim Alternatives

    Firenvim is described as 'This Chrome extension lets you use Neovim directly from your browser. Contrary to other extensions, it does not open a new OS window' and is an app in the Web Browsers category. There are more than 10 alternatives to Firenvim for a variety of platforms, including Mac, Windows, Linux, Firefox and Google Chrome. The best alternative is Vimium, which is both free and Open Source. Other great apps like Firenvim are cVim (Free, Open Source), Vim Vixen (Free, Open Source), Vimac (Free, Open Source) and Surfingkeys (Free, Open Source).
