From today forward, gone is the need to move your mouse to enter a URL into your browser’s address. Next time, just press F6 and start typing.
If you’re someone who uses the mouse in your left hand, the standard CTRL-X, -C, & -V aren’t exactly handy. (Argh, puns!) Instead try SHIFT-DELETE, CTRL-INSERT, and SHIFT-INSERT for Cut, Copy, and paste respectively.
With testing, I’ve found that the first works in Chrome, but the other two don’t.
This tip works in IE, Chrome & Firefox. (I don’t have Safari so would someone be willing to confirm if it works there?)
The quickest way to access you browser’s Download Manger is CTRL-J. This is much faster than hunting around for the right icon or menu item, especially if you’re constantly switching browsers.
