I think Ubuntu is great because I don't have to go touching my mouse as often as my windows.

But, on thing I would like to figure out is how to not use my mouse for webpages. Often I have to tab through plenty of links to get to the link I want and in most cases it is better to just use the mouse. I was wondering if there was a way of making it so I can browse through links faster without having to use the mouse or tab through a hundred links. Maybe there is some program out there that lets me just simply hold alt and press WSAD to snap through links on a webpage or something?

Anyone know how to help?

I have the option Search for text when I start typing enabled. That way I can reach a link rather quickly; I just type a few letters from the link text.

Thats pretty niftey but it doesnt work for everything. I.E image links, search bars, or buttons that don't have text. Definitely still useful though.

Also, sometimes when I'm using it I can't use space bar to scrool down because it is in the quickfind mode. How do i cancel out of the quickfind mode?
