Many websites display more than one headline on their frontpage. These headlines link to articles or post on individual pages on the website.
If you browse the main page, a tag or category page here on Ghacks for example, you get ten different articles and therefore also titles per page.
TitleQ is a handy Firefox add-on that adds a keyboard shortcut to the browser to jump straight between headlines.
Headlines in technical terms are most of the time defined by HTML headline tags like h1, h2 or h3.
The extension scans the page for these elements and selects the most likely used to display post titles or headlines on the page.
All it takes to jump between headlines on a page is to press Ctrl-Down or Ctrl-Up. The first shortcut jumps to the next headline on the page, the other to the previous headline.
TitleQ is helpful for users who regularly visit websites that display multiple article excerpts or headlines on a page. It is possible to do that without add-on, by pressing Page Down or Page Up for instance, scrolling or using the arrow keys on the keyboard. None of these methods on the other hand are that exact which means that they often need some fine-tuning afterwards.
A comparable solution is the SiteFlow bookmarklet which offers more than just the ability to jump between headlines. The bookmarklet can also be used to navigate a website, for instance to go to the next or previous page. Another benefit is that it is compatible with all modern web browsers supporting bookmarklets.
TitleQ is available exclusively for the Firefox web browser. It is available for direct installation at the Firefox add-on repository.
Update: The browser add-on is not compatible anymore with recent versions of the Firefox browser. While it can still be installed, it will only jump between the very top and bottom of a page and not between headlines anymore.
There is no alternative available for Firefox right now that you could use instead.
