My boss asked me today if it was possible to tab through the tabs of a Firefox window (the only drawback to tabbed browsing is that you lose ALT-TAB). Turns out you can use CTRL-PAGEDOWN and CTRL-PAGEUP to tab through multiple tabs in a Firefox window, Which is nice. Some of the other ones I use without even realizing they’ve become part of my vocabulary are:
CTRL-T — open a new tab
CTRL-D — bring focus to the URL
CTRL-R — reload the current page
CTRL-F12 — bring focus to the google toolbar search box
There’s a nice list of keyboard shortcuts here.
I think you should have to memorize at least 12 keyboard shortcuts before you’re even allowed to use a computer. It kills me when someone uses a mouse to do something you can do in less than a second with the keyboard. Maybe someone can write a Pragmatic Keyboarding book or a Keyboarding Hacks books.
