I sometimes need to edit pages on WikiDot, but WikiDot overrides the +E shortcut (and many others), which is a system-wide shortcut I often use due to the lack of an end-key on my keyboard.

Is there a way to stop all webpages from overriding any shortcuts?

Just a heads up, command-right and command-left are shortcuts for end and home resp. – ephsmith Jul 16 '12 at 20:30
not really a solution, but these key parsers are Javascript based, so disable JS. Unfortunately (or fortunately as some people will have you believe) you will probably find a lot of functionality is removed. – Stu Wilson Jul 16 '12 at 21:18

There are three ways to prevent this behavior on a web page.

  1. Preferred method - Use the settings on the Web App to disable or change shortcut keybindings.
  2. Use a third-party Safari extension that allows you to modify the keybindings for javascript.
  3. Disable Javascript in Safari.

Can you post any links for a Safari extension that can do this? – Nikolai Ruhe Aug 13 '13 at 11:02
