Useful Keypresses in browsers

What’s the best keypresses for browsers?

I’m keen on the following:

  • Alt-D Go to Address Bar
  • Ctrl-Enter Add the www. and .com to your word in the address bar
  • F11 – Ok, it takes you to full-screen.  Not very handy.  But!  Tapping F11 twice makes a non-resizable popup window resizable (IE only).

Any other good ones?  I’d be keen to know the keypress to bring up the IE Dev Toolbar.

He’s right.  It would be good.  But I can see applications of it for microformats and semantic markup too.
If you attach behaviors (using Dean Edwards’ Mozilla extension) to the element, you can add script actions as well as style.

So you can essentially rewrite the browser using JS. Continue reading Creating new HTML elements
