I have a pretty huge .vimrc by now which use to edit tex documents.

I also ask questions on MathStackExchange frequently and there I do not have any of the keybindings which I have when I am working using vim. So my typing becomes really slow, especially because I unwittingly use the the same key strokes on MSE text area which I use in vim, giving weird output. Then I end up cleaning up the mess.

Is there a way to use the same keybindings on MSE which I have in my .vimrc?

I am using chromium web browser in Ubuntu 14.04.

    One (less than ideal) option is to type it in vim, then copy it over. – 8bittree Sep 25 '15 at 17:01

There are plugins available to edit text areas with an external editor. After a brief google search I found the following:

Hope this helps.
