I lost my mouse one time, so I had to surf without it. SPAMNo choice. SPAMKeystrokes might help, but I wouldn't want to go through what I had to put up with again. SPAMImagine you're on a page with 60 links (not an unusually large number for some sites). SPAMYou want link #55. SPAMThat means you have to hit the tab key 55 times before you get to where you'd like to be!
