Hmm.. that's actually not a bad idea.  It would make it handier than editing the
URL to hop around.  I'm sure the file manager view, when looking at the local
disk would benefit from something like that.
No, you misunderstand... just like space does "page down", backspace should do
"page up".

Ok, this is going to sound really odd.. but I've never seen this backspace used
that way.  I've only ever seen it go back a page in history or up a directory
level.  Hmm <shrug>

At any rate, we can agree to disagree on the binding of that key.. (ur, pardon
the rhyme).  You're the boss =)

At some point in the future, I'd like attention paid to one-handed keyboarding
as a way of surfing.  Opera-style keys were rather interesting back when I used
it.. flipping between mousing and keyboarding two-handed is a wierd.  That's why
I was pushing for a one-key solution.

Hey hang on.. I just noticed that backspace is already bound to the type-ahead
search, to switch between items.  That's a way better use.. cool.  Nevermind
then..  =/
