Scroll through returned search results in Address Book Apps
This is a really simple by nice feature I found in Address Book. I have my Address Book set up to show "Card Only" (View -> Card Only), which is a bit annoying when searches return more than one person, but this little trick makes it a lot easier to traverse through the returned names.

After entering your search query, just press Enter again, and Adress Book will jump to the next person in the list! Shift+Enter will jump back. This even works without searching, but it's a bit of a slow way to go through 300+ entries.

This is actually quite neat!
especially since the tab feature in AB is somewhat inconsistent.
at least the working of enter key is clear!
Thanks for this

You can also scroll with the arrow keys : up and down.

The usual "Back" and "Forth" keys work, too: Cmd-[ and Cmd-]
