Default Google beta shortcuts

It's a very simple feature as far as Google goes - no massive new application like Gmail or Google docs.

But I think it's really cool, and really useful as well - I'm much faster navigating through results this way and much prefer it to reaching for the mouse all the time.

Just seems easier to use your mouse to me

Google labs have a bunch of interesting projects, i though people had seen em, that's the only reason i've never posted any up here.

For a geek like me who's used to using vim, those keyboard shortcuts work really nicely indeed. I just prefer using the keyboard where possible (and feasible) over the mouse.

They have got quite a few projects I agree, but I hadn't heard of this one until the other day, nor had 5 other fellow geeks who I told and who all liked it. So just thought I'd point it out

I don't like it. I am way too used to mouse and scroll wheel.
