I'm trying to make my Mac as mouseless and possible. My three last big hurdles:

  • Moving the current window to a different space in Spaces. (I'm still on OS 10.6, until 10.8 comes out.)

  • A more efficient way to move through toolbars and menu bar than Tab.


  • When using Safari, being able to Cmd-F ("find") linked text and then click it. (Or some better way to move through in-page links I've not thought of.)
  • 2
    In FF, you can set it so that typing = searching. Not need for CMD+F. So just type the link. If it isn't unique, tab or CMD+G to get to it, then hit enter. – user588 Apr 8 '12 at 13:57

  • Brilliant! You should submit this to Safari's extension page (unless it's there and I've not seen it). – iDontKnowBetter Apr 10 '12 at 16:48
  • @fakaff It's listed in the extension gallery already. – Lri Apr 11 '12 at 11:50
  • I've been using Glims for this, but this looks better -- Glims isn't a new-style Safari extension, and it doesn't allow you to activate links from the keyboard either. (I'll be keeping Glims installed for one or two other things, though.) – calum_b Apr 11 '12 at 13:53

CmdF-selected text doesn't seem to be available to activate. But you can OptTab / OptShiftTabthrough the page's links until you've highlighted the one you want, then Enter to activate it.

In Preferences | Advanced, you can reverse the Tab behavior so the Tab selects links and OptTab selects window elements.

According to https://superuser.com/questions/233246/move-windows-between-spaces-in-mac-os-x-using-only-the-keyboard there is no keyboard shortcut for moving a window to a different space.
