Yet another back/forward key for some browsers
Authored by: fiddler on May 08, '04 06:27:22AM

Cmd- [ and Cmd -] also happen to be the only keyboard shortcuts that work once you're "trapped" inside a form, i.e. a text-box. You have to refocus the body of the webpage in order for the other shortcuts (cmd-arrow, backspace, etc) to work. This is because when you're inside a text-box, cmd-arrow by default moves you to either the front (back arrow) or end (forward) of the line in the textbox (as it should). And of course backspace acts as backspace.
