    Quick Tip:

    Normally you use access keys in Safari by pressing CTRL + ACCESS KEY.

    But now control + NUMBER maps to spaces.

    To get round this, press CTRL + ALT + ACCESS KEY.

    Just discovered this and thought I'd share.

    Thanks a lot for this tip. It is too bad that one has to resort to this remapping as most users will never discover it.

    Access keys seem like such a cool idea!

    I guess you dragged it up by search.

    I'm glad it was some use to someone.

    Is there any way to change the ctrl+alt combination back to just ctrl for safari? Firefox uses ctrl only and I really like having to press only one button :p. It's not a deal breaker over the browser I use but it is one of those "nice to have" things :p.
