Skip through sections in Safari 6's Location bar autocomplete menu Web Browsers
In Safari 6, when you type into the omnibar - what Apple calls the "address and search field" - the autocomplete menu that shows suggestions for what you typed may be very long. If you want to select your bookmarks or history with the keyboard, you have to press the down arrow many times to get to them.

You can skip sections by holding down the Command key while pressing the up- or down-arrow buttons. So if you've typed something in the address and search field, you can press Command-down arrow to skip past the search engine suggestions, and then use the arrow key alone to select the item you want.

This is the same as the Spotlight menu.

Unfortunately, what isn't supported in Safari (but is in Spotlight) is using the End key (or Fn+right arrow) to jump to the end of the menu.

You can also remove the suggested keywords by checking "Prevent search engine from providing suggestions" in the privacy preferences.
