Does a chrome/chromium extension exist that can configure often used readline keybindings?

Specifically Ctrl+a for Home, Ctrl+e for End, Ctrl+d, etc for use within a text editing box.

I have found several chrome extensions that allows one to configure shortcut keys to execute specific tasks such as selecting a tab page or opening a file, etc.

None have any provision for simulating another key (e.g. Crtl+a could simulate pressing the Home key), or for executing actions that pertain to the input field.

  • Do you want to navigate within a page, or more specifically edit text within a textbox?

One chrome/firefox extension I find very useful is Edit with Emacs which I used to replace "It's All Text" when it became defunct.

The extension adds a button to every textarea in a page, which when clicked on copies the current contents to your Emacs editor where you can edit it. When done the text is sent back to the textarea. I used it to create this answer.

It says it can work with other editors, but I don't have any examples to give you.
