I've recently switched to a MacBook as my main platform for doing work. Previously, I was an all-Linux sort of person (I now run Linux under VMware). But there are still a few UI differences that are driving me crazy, and one of them is this:
I am used to being able to use ctrl+→/← when in a web form, or even in most editing apps, to move left and right by a whole word. However, on my MBP those keys switch between desktops in Spaces. And where MacOS tends to use the ⌘-key for common control-isms (like ctrl+C, etc.), ⌘+← and ⌘+→` do start-of-line and end-of-line, respectively.
Is there a modifier for moving by words, under MacOS?
