Firefox tricks...

As a long term Windows user, but also a developer, I am a strong believer in Fitts Law. But I know it is difficult to reconcile the two design requirements of simple interface for beginners, with advanced interface for experts.

So I love to find anything that quickly merges into my standard keyboard usage and makes me more efficient and faster. Especially given the enormous increases in productivity that are available by doing this properly

I know these will seem obvious to those who know...but:

In FireFox:

  • CTRL + click on a link -> open page in a new tab

  • CTRL + TAB -> switch tab (like Alt+Tab for windows)

  • CTRL + N -> New Window

  • CTRL + T -> New Tab

  • CTRL + W -> Close Tab or Close Window

If you have any more, please add them here.
No quips about emacs etc... I already know, but clients needs dictate.
