Keyboard shortcuts

Ctrl + T and Ctrl + W are so amazingly useful, I wonder why it’s taken me so long to find out about them. Tabbed browsing is wonderful :).
Been to Edinburgh today, and had to put up with at least three people playing Scottish bagpipes. Notice how no-one in Newcastle plays the Northumbrian pipes. Anyhow, it was a nice sunny day and I quite enjoyed myself. Oh yeah, and Dad got himself a decent digital camera, which arrives on Tuesday. And naturally, it’s better than mine, so I’m now in envy.


  1. Personally, I can’t live without Ctrl + T. 😛 That, and the scroll wheel button on my mouse (which opens links in tabs).

  2. Whilst you have tabs open : Try Ctrl+Tab and Ctrl+Shift+Tab for fast switching.

  3. Yea, I wasn’t too keen on Mozilla at first, but I warmed up to it pretty quick. The tabbed browsing and saving groups of tabs has made me a firm believer.

  4. What does CTRL T and CTRL W do?

  5. Ctrl+T = Open new tab
    Ctrl+W = Close tab
