About what you find useful

Shortcut keys are not limited to a single character

When the number of things you want to register as shortcuts increases, you may find that the keys overlap.
With ShortcutKey2URL, you can specify not only a single key but also multiple keys, so there is no problem even if the number of shortcuts increases.

You can jump to an already open tab

Jump to url is a shortcut key action.
When this is specified, the behavior is as follows.

  • If the URL is already open, go to that tab.
    URLs are compared by forward matching.
  • If the URL is not already open, open it as a new tab.

Bookmarklets can be registered

In addition to the url, you can also register a bookmarklet.
Bookmarklets can be specified as an Execute script.

JavaScript can be executed after the URL is opened

You can also set up JavaScript to be executed immediately after opening a URL.
If you enter the JavaScript you want to execute in the Script (Optional) field, the JavaScript will be executed when you open or navigate to the URL.

  • I want to change the initial focus position.
  • I want to put a value in the input form as the initial value.
