Mouseless Firefox

Are you using Firefox as your browser? Read on.

From the Accessify.com blog, I learned that Mark Pilgrim made a nice extension to Firefox so you can tab to your bookmark toolbar. Very nice.

I am still not fluent in all the commands and other mouse-avoiding shortcuts in Firefox. The Firefox help lists many keyboard shortcuts, and there is more Firefox accessibility information in the MozillaZine knowledge base.

What really improved my use of commands was a post by Derek Featherstone back in November. The Ctrl+K to get to the search box, and the Ctrl+arrow up or Ctrl+arrow down was a browser breakthrough for me.

Not using Firefox? Hop over to Firefox and download! It’s my preferred browser, although I do have Internet Explorer and Opera installed for checking the way browsers display a particular site, and for generally staying in touch with the various options out there.
