What is LiKeyChess - Lichess with your keyboard!?
LiKeyChess is a Firefox add-on that enables you to play chess on Lichess.org using only your keyboard. Click move should be enabled for optimal functionality. It's perfect for laptop users or those tired of mouseslips. Start a game on Lichess.org and click the button to activate KeyboardChess.
NOTE: This feature exists natively on Lichess here and is much more polished than this addon. I recommend only using this addon to achieve playing with your keyboard if you have some special reason.
