The Holy Grail of Keyboard Shortcuts

keyboard commans

Smashing Magazine has a massive list of over 200 keyboard commands. Wow.  Talk about comprehensive.  The only problem I have with the list is that it makes it sound like knowing these keyboard commands is a must for becoming more productive.

There is nothing more valuable than the time we need to get things done. Over a long period of time time-saving techniques and solutions can turn out to be real life-savers. The more you use them, the more essential they become. Besides, using them in your favourite software applications, you can drastically increase your productivity, enhance your time-managment and improve both your professional skills and the quality of your work.

While I’ll agree that keyboard shortcuts are pretty valuable to anyone who uses the web daily, I don’t think they’re life-savers.  But maybe I’ve just never been in the kind of life-or-death situation that required knowledge of keyboard shortcuts… ;)

Still, this is a handy little list for anyone wanting to become a little quicker on the keys.

    Mice suck. Mice have always sucked. Mice are as efficient as the QWERTY keyboard. There are few things less productive than taking your hands off the keyboard to fiddle around with your mouse and menus.
