A couple of random helpful things that I've noticed lately that I thought were pretty cool.
1) When using google calendar, if you use the scroll wheel (or 2 finger scroll with a mac), it will scroll "pages" in the calender. For example, when you're in the month view and you scroll, it will change months. Pretty handy.
2) In firefox, I've known for a long time that you can get to the url / location bar by ctrl-l (or command-l) and to the search bar using ctrl-k (command-k). With the search box you can set it up to search different search engines / sites (google, yahoo!, wikipedia). What I didn't know is that you can change the search engine using the keyboard by using the up / down arrows and the alt key (command key on the mac). Now I can easily switch what I'm searching without using the mouse and finding that part in the ui.
I enjoy little things like that. ;-)Posted by jim at January 22, 2009 08:40 AM
