[I did read Unimpressive's 'Keyboard Shortcuts' ticket. Consider this to be piggybacking on what they said.]


Proposed Addition

Keyboard Shortcuts


Details

Simple site / gallery interaction using the keyboard


Implementation

These functions would take effect only when outside of a text field

examples:

[IN GALLERY SUBMISSION VIEW]

F ~ Favorite P ~ Promote

D ~ Download R ~ Reload

Enter ~ Selects Comment Box [Disables keyboard shortcuts until either focus is lost, or Comment is sent by pressing Enter once-more]

Esc ~ Back to Collection / Gallery (Up One Level in Folder Tree)

Arrow Keys ~ Previous / Next Item

+ / - ~ Zoom (when native functionality added)

0 [Zero] ~ Return to 100% / Native Zoom


[MAIN SITE VIEW]

H ~ Home (Profile View) [Press again, After Page has Loaded, to View Profile Items]

R ~ Refresh S ~ Search

(etc)


Reasoning

The site, looks like it would already have this functionality, and I think that, even though it's taken for granted, keyboard shortcuts can do a lot to speed up someone's usage of the site. Accessibility and advanced usage reasons.

Completed

At this point, the site has keyboard shortcuts, and we're looking at opportunities to make these better for users.
