Webkit inside Emacs, a fairly decent browser compared with eww/w3m. 
Everyone has their own dreams, and every emacser has an own operating system dream! – AndyStewart. We want full-featured browser in Emacs! I think all emacsers are hoping to run a modern browser inside Emacs, instead of plain text browser like w3m, as it breaks emacs' pure text world.

Neat, but won't likely replace Firefox for me.

Vi mode mimic vim
I am following a great vim book and for each practice I try both in vim and emacs+vi. For most of functions, vi mode works as expected but there are about 10% - 20% either not working or not working correctly. I refer to important and useful functions such as jumping-between-parenth with "%",  visual mode select then paste with "p", command-line mode. 
How are you guys' experience with vi v.s. vim?

+Sylver Stone for efficient emacs keybinding systems, i need specific commands to save keystrokes.

in xah fly keys, without this command, the key to copy all is 【home menu m q】.
(【home】 to switch to command mode, 【menu m】 calls universal-argument, q is for copy)

with this command, it's just 【menu q】.

Find File Location of a Feature Name

in emacs, if you know a feature name, you can locate the file by calling find-library

For example, call describe-variable then type “features”. Then pick any of the item. Then, call find-library, type that item. Emacs will jump to the file where the feature is defined.

I usually do describe-function, then jump to the file location. But, find-library is more direct, and useful. Because sometimes you only know the feature name, not the command to invoke it.

got the tip from https://twitter.com/_wilfredh

How to open hyperlinks from google chrome browser when reading email in Gnus
I have set '(browse-url-generic-program "google-chrome") and it works as expect for URLs in email content. 
However, if it is a hyperlink (i.e. the URL is beneath a text) Gnus tries to use w3m instead of chrome when I hit enter key.

What I want: 
1. use w3m to render html content in email, which is working perfectly already.
2. open URLs or hyperlinks from google chrome when enter key is hit.

Any idea?

A bit of a monologue on turning your init file into a blog.
When this blog was conceived, I decided that I wanted it to be entirely contained in a single org file, and that this would also be my Emacs init file. On the blog’s very first post I explained how to implement the latter, an init file that also serves other purposes. Today, Endless Parentheses turns 1 year old, and it’s time to explain the former, how to turn a file into a blog.

Python indentation.

I can't get emacs working with 4 space indentation. It messes up my code.

From my .emacs:
(add-hook 'python-mode-hook
          (lambda ()
            (setq indent-tabs-mode t)
            (setq tab-width 4)
            (setq python-indent 4)))

Any suggestions, please?

this is probably all you need.
;; majority of code formatting conventions do no recommend mixed tabs and spaces. So, here.
(setq-default indent-tabs-mode nil) ; gnu emacs 23.1, 24.4.1 default is t

;; 4 is more popular than 8.
(setq tab-width 4) ; width for display tabs. emacs 23.1 default is 8

if not, let me know.

If you've got your init file in org-mode, sometimes it's nice to find problems by tracing when different blocks are loaded. Turns out you can hack org-babel's method of writing comments to do just that: http://www.treese.org/win/2015/08/tracing-emacs-init/

Does anyone here use Google Chrome, and using a keyboard scheme that is close to emacs?
I can't seem to find anything that is up-to-date :(
What are your experiences?

I have found this, which I can just bind however I want, but it would be much easier with something that just works..

+Jay Dugger I know a couple of my friends who used it, but at the time (like 2 years back or so) it was very limited in the keys you could bind (since Chrome reserves a good deal). Is it better now?

Question: Shall I switch to emacs+Evil since I am still a emacs beginner at moment?

I am a intrigued 3-month-experience Emacs user with very little Vim knowledge. I am currently fairly comfortable with emacs keys. I use prelude setup from github + limited amount of own customization. 
I heard that using Evil/spaceman mode can gain benefits of both Emacs and Vim, for example, saving a lot of keystrokes. I am considering of learning it along with basic Vim keys.

Thank you all for great comments! I have decided to give up current setups and embrace Chenbin's .emacs.d  emacs+evil mode as new start. Currently I am on "learning Vim" phase :)

imenu+ vs. imenu-anywhere

It seems that if imenu+ and imenu-anywhere are both loaded, calling imenu-anywhere throws an error:

imenu-anywhere--candidates-from-entry:
    Wrong type argument: integer-or-marker-p,
    (IGNORE (lambda (&rest _ignore) (imenup-toggle-case-sensitive-sorting)))
    
This has something to do with the way that imenu+ redefines some imenu functions, but I haven't chased it down beyond that.

Update: thanks to quick work by the authors of both packages, imenu-anywhere and imenu+ now play nice together! The change is in the latest imenu-anywhere, available on github and through MELPA.
