Change Safari's back and forward keys
Authored by: chueewowee on Jan 29, '09 04:58:20PM

The shift-command { binding works for me on british keyboards, and also, simply, coma and stop (, and .), which I use and find easy to execute and remember. I haven't changed the bindings.
What annoys me is the several alternative for find, which are non-intuitive, and conflict with other more usual shortcuts in OS X applications. It very annoying and happens often. I'm going to remove them. One good option would be better to avoid those mistakes, and easier to remember.

I have to deal with bindings from many applicaitons, and now I try to narrow my applicaitons down, just to avoid a terrible mind boggle..it's not good for long-term consistent learning.

I speak asd someone who uses terminal apps now by choice, for email, news, and browsing (elinks - though not always ). I even snipe on ebay form the terminal. SHorcuts and regular applications are the way to go. FOr a text editor , I use textmate and that is a powerful for text and for programming. Make slife easier, BUt bindings are still hard to remember long term, because of the reasons given...too many variance.. The terminal programmes ar eslick, and highly cusomizable, designed for keyboars nteraction. `but not for the feint-hearted.

Unfortunately , pc's have been sold and taught through mouse use. It would be better for the human race if the approach was through the key board, with mouse for resizing windows and moving them, though a shortcut might be employed for that too, with vision., to grab a window and move it with the the arrows. Maybe ther eis such a facility, who knows.



Thanks for the tip.
