MouseFeed for Eclipse is Your Personal Keyboard Shortcuts Coach

MouseFeed | Eclipse Plugins, Bundles and Products - Eclipse Marketplace: "MouseFeed helps to form a habit of using keyboard shortcuts. When the user clicks on a button or on a menu item, the plugin shows a popup reminding about the key shortcut. After a few times, you remember the keyboard shortcut and you will start using it, rather than clicking through menus. This will save you a lot of time at the end of the day."

It works as advertised and started to show popups for actions selected trough menu right after installation and restart. For example, if  "Run->Run..." menu action selected popup shown below appear.

It also has "Action invocation counter threshold" parameter in preferences, which controls the popup behavior for actions without shortcuts.
