Better Pinboard enhances popular bookmarking site Pinboard.in.

Keyboard Shortcuts: By default, Pinboard allows you to jump around within the site, but doesn’t give you a whole lot of bookmark navigation or manipulation options. This will also enable you to “leap” to a tag or combination of tags without ever using the mouse. See below for the keyboard shortcuts that this extension will give you.

Navigation
n or ] = next bookmark/note
p or [ = previous bookmark/note
+ = add new URL
shift-n = add a new note
g then * = go to starred
g then p = go to private
g then l = leap to a new tab (comma separated)
g then w = go to written notes

Selected Bookmark/Note
e = edit
t = edit tags
s = toggle star
# = delete
x = mark as read (done)
[enter] or o = open selected
[shift-enter] = open selected in a new tab
v = open cached version
shift-v = open cached version in new tab
c (then cmd-c) = copy selected bookmark/note url

Others
h = toggles Hiding of peripheral content (minify view)
\ = enter “type-ahead” mode to filter the view (experimental)

LEAP to a tag or combo of tags
Probably my personal favorite, with a quick “g, l” you can bring up a quick modal that allows you to dive in to a tag or combination of tags really quickly. For instance, “g, l” followed by “videos,funny” would show me all of my bookmarks tagged “videos” and “funny.”

Minify Your Bookmark View by Hiding Noisy, Peripheral Information
With a quick keyboard shortcut ‘h’ you can hide all of that peripheral, noisy information and see a birds eye view of your bookmarks.

Type-ahead!
Just press “\” and you’re in “filter” mode. You can type-ahead mode and filter everything out of your view that doesn’t match what you type. Excellent!

“To Read” becomes “To Do”
We use Pinboard for lots of things. Not just articles, but videos, games, pictures. Not everything is something you “read.” One thing that has always bothered me about Pinboard is that this section is titled “To Read.” This extension also “renames” this section to “To do.” Furthermore, instead of marking things as “read,” you now mark things as “done.” I just think it works a lot better.

Mini Pinboard Access
With the click of the toolbar button, get access to your bookmarks from anywhere.
