Great product! Finaly a fast, small browser! What a breath of fresh air! I know this is the first developmental version of this softare, but I have a few requests: Better support for keyboards! A Ctrl-N should give us a new window (but I see the option isn't even supported yet) and Ctrl-O should allow ust to open a new URL. Also, anything you can do for us keyboard users so we don't have to resort to the mouse every other window would be great!

The Customization section allows you to attach keyboard shortcuts to all of the command features in the program. Maybe he Should have a default set with other than blanks for all of them, but it is quite capable.

It would be really nice if we could assinge the escape key to stop the browser from loading.

Also, this must be a gecko bug, but why is the text in this form field centered? It's very strange! But a cool effect. smiling smiley

All I want is my up/down arrow and PgDn/PgUp keys working.

But, even with all of its faults this is a great browser. Beats Njetscape or Exploder anytime.

This is a request for keyboard navigation feature.
I would like to see more intelligent key-board navigation support, atleast in this browser!

What is wrong in current browsers?
In other browsers(IE, Netscape), when you press TAB key, the focus goes to the
*first* link on start of the HTML page. This is very non-intuitive.

What I would like to see?
When you press the TAB key, the focus should go to the first link in the currently
*displayed* part of the page, not to the *first* link in the page. There are
PGUP and PGDN to traverse pages faster. Even CTRL-PGUP can be programmed
to take to the start of the page and CTRL-PGDN should take to end of page.

Thanks for your effort.
