Minor updates to Introduction to Vim article

I've added short intro sections on vim's command mode, recording macros and a link mentioned by lowks about a Vim cheat sheet.

Mozex - Mozilla Extensions

This is pretty indispensible addon for me. It provides features that should be in Mozilla/Firefox and the author says it as such. What it gives you is a context menu to launch user definable programs for specific actions.

For example:

  • Assign mailto: for Firefox to launch new mail window for evolution, add this line for Mailer:

    evolution-1.5 %r

    Updated: David Woodhouse, has pointed out that mangling the url, is not a good idea, and one should just pass the mailto: url as is for evolution as shown above

  • To edit a text area in browser, like say Yahoo mail with vim, add this in your mozex preference for Text Area:

    gvim %t

    New Advogato Features

    New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.

    Keep up with the latest Advogato features by reading the Advogato status blog.
