Right now, we inherit some keyboard shortcuts from Firefox while others from the desktop don't work. While we shouldn't feel like we can't change the desktop shortcut scheme where it makes sense for us to do so, a fair amount of the benefit of these keys will come to people who have learned them on the desktop. Letting them keep that learning is of value. Here's a list of the current situation. Works right now =============== ctrl-t -- opens a new tab ctrl-w -- closes current tab ctrl-l (L) -- activate location bar ctrl-q -- quits the app ctrl-left, backspace -- back ctrl-right, shift-backspace -- forward Only work sometimes, should always work ======================================= up - move up down- move down spacebar - pan you down a "page" don't currently, but possibly should ==================================== ctrl-d, ctrl-b -- bookmark (or ctrl-b could bring up the list of all bookmarks) ctrl-tap -- open in new background tab ctrl-r -- reload ctrl-up -- zoom in (on desktop it's ctrl-+, but that's too hard on n900) ctrl-down -- zoom out (on desktop it's ctrl--, but that's too hard on n900) Others, for interest, from the desktop ====================================== ctrl-j -- downloads shift-ctrl-d -- bookmark all open tabs ctrl-U -- page source
the up and down keys, for moving the page, aren't particularly high priority, but having them move you between fields when editing a form is.
