    How can I page back with my keyboard vs. clicking on the back arrow in safari? It's just such a hassle sometimes.

    Thanks,
    Chris

    Apple + [ and ] will page back/forth.

    Apple + arrow keys don't always work, but Apple + [ ] will.

    That shortcut also works in Firefox (on Macs at least. Perhaps it's ctrl + [] on Windows.) It probably works in Shiira too.

    You can do either Command-Left/right arrow or Command-Left/right bracket, but for some reason Command-bracket works more dependably, and is consistent with the Finder shortcuts. I bound Command-left/right bracket to the forward and back buttons on my MX510, it's awesome.

    You usually have to click on blank space of the page itself first to use the arrows; I think the Command+brackets overrides the current focus within the application.
