Recently I switched from using bash to zsh on OS X. I used to be a real mouse user, but more and more I am adapting to use keyboard shortcuts. Yes… it does save lots of time.

The jump one word forward or backward is not working by default. To enable them, add the snippet below to your .zshrc:

bindkey -e
# Option-Right
bindkey '\e\e[C' forward-word
# Option-Left
bindkey '\e\e[D' backward-word
