If the displayed page contains dozens of links, hitting f 20 RET can be
much better than TAB twenty times or navigating to the link.  Note that
C-u 20 TAB is usually not workable because it requires you to know that
the link you want to follow is exactly 20 links after point.

There are similar plugins that assign characters to links instead of
numbers, so the first 26 visible links are just one key away.

Or another nice and similar approach was to have a command
`eww-isearch-links' which does what isearch does but considers only link
texts.  Probably, that would also be easier to implement as you don't
need to add dozens of overlays displaying link numbers/chars.
