When watching demo videos on YouTube, I have realized how even some of the most seasoned developers are cracking their keyboards while navigating around in their code in vim, just to get to the right part.
Obviously many are not using the "smart" navigation keys like w for jumping forward one word, often enough, and there is a need for a simpler solution.
My suggestion is to simply be able to increase the navigation speed of the normal navigation keys (h,j,k,l), by simply holding down Shift or Ctrl, to increase the speed 4 x respectively. I find it to work great, and save my hands and wrists a lot of strain!
To acvitave it, add these lines to your
" Navigate 4x faster when holding down Ctrl
nmap <c-j> 4j
nmap <c-k> 4k
nmap <c-h> 4h
nmap <c-l> 4l
