Caret navigation is most useful for navigation between links. However, the current implementation makes this too cumbersome due to two shortcomings: 1. Other elements are selectable as well (making it a chore to move between two links that are separated with lots of text) 2. When moving the caret horizontally, it moves across each character in the link, rather then from one link to another. It would be useful if a modifer key (Shift+F7? F7->CapsLock?) would switch caret navigation mode so that only links are selected. All elements but links should be skipped, and character-based horizontal movement across links should not be allowed in this mode. Ideally, Accel+Arrows in this mode should move the caret one screen at a time for quicker navigation in long pages. Prog.
Prog, is it directional navigation you want? That's bug 67684, and I think this is a DUP. There's a Firefox extension to do that as well, see comment 56 in that bug.
