Firefox: find as you type

Back in the days when I used Kubuntu, I used konqueror because if I hit the CTRL key, all the links would light up with a yellow tag by its side with either a letter or a number (or some character). If I typed that character then konqueror would go to that link's page. I love this feature because I can be efficient surfing the web with the keyboard (mouse / trackpad is slow!).

Anywho, I always wanted Firefox to have this feature. I just discovered that Firefox has a similar feature. Check this page for a description. To turn on the feature, go to preferences > Advance and check "Search text as i start typing". Firefox just got better.

The following is taken from the previous link to remind myself of some features.
