Maybe it's just me, but at least once every few days, I find myself trying to use cmd-[ to go back a page when browsing. I'm not looking at the keyboard, and I hit cmd-P instead, which of course brings up the print window. Just annoys the heck out of me.

Is there a way to remap the keys to be somewhere else, or do I just have to focus a bit more on what I'm doing and find something more important to worry about?

Cmd-Shift-Left and Cmd-Shift-Right also change between tabs... have you tried using those instead? I honestly never use Cmd-] or Cmd-[... they're too hard to reach! *whine*

EDIT: Oops, back a page.

Alternatives for back a page are the backspace key (as long as you're not in a text box) or Apple-Left (no shift). :)

Hi, if you have safariStand installed you can toggle between tabs using the comma(,) and period(.) keys. no fuss, no muss. cheers.

Thanks - just what I needed. I never heard of cmd-arrow, but it works exactly how I want. Much less awkward than cmd-[ too. And it's nice and close to my trackpad, so I don't need to move as far (am I lazy or what - really need to get on a treadmill one of these days).

Does it strike anyone as kind of weird that there are three different keboard shortcuts to do the same thing?

I've got a pet peeve too. Whenever I go back or forwards, the page reloads itself. Is there anyway I can change this? Usually when I go backwards, I'd like to see the page I was previously at, not a reloaded version.
