Merlin Mann is on fire with his 43 Folders weblog on productivity - heavy on the OSX. Today he's talking about Keyboard commands in Safari, which continues my journey in the land of mouse-free computing. The beardy ones may well have a point: it is easier to use complicated keyboard shortcuts after a while. My fave so far is shift-apple-left/right arrow, for moving between tabs in Safari. The other thing that is starting to rock my world is type-ahead-find in the browser. It's standard in Firefox, but you can get it in Safari with the really-rather-tremendous Saft extension. Now I don't have to use the mouse at all with the browser, which is working out to be a lot quicker. It also scares the crap out of on-lookers, which can only be a good thing. (Crossposted)


  • fiwt also enables type-ahead in Safari:

  • Of course, in Safari 1.3 and 2.0 (I believe on the latter), it's shift-cmd-] and shift-cmd-[. :-P
