Did you ever think that using the mouse while browsing was too painful? Here are a few tips to reduce using your “rodent” while browsing. Avoid RSI and Carpal TUnnel Syndrome!
- Learn the Firefox Keyboard Shortcuts. For example, ctrl + l takes you to the location bar.
- Setup custom keyword searches for your regular searches, it is a lot faster than ctrl + k (shortcut for search field), and selecting the search engine.
- Install the extension NextPlease for reading mailing lists, forums, etc. Highly recommended!
- Install the extension Hit-a-Hint for giving you a listing of all the links on a page. Hit a key and go to the page!
If you are using Linux, you could just use Konqueror, an excellent-fully-loaded web browser with all the above features inbuilt!
