  • Supports scrolling with h (left), j (bottom), k (up), l (right)
  • Supports gg (to top) and Shift+g (to bottom)
  • Supports gt (next tab) and gT (previous tab)
  • Supports command repetition as in vim. 100j will scroll down 100 lines.
Note that {i}gt works as vim's gt. So 2gt means "go to the second tab" (the first tab's index is 1)
