OT: Mac Keyboard Shortcuts Help

From excessive Post Whoring and other computer activities that i have been engaging in in the past i developed repetitive motion syndrome.

long story short i cannot use a mouse any more, and if i have to, it has to be really minimal use.

On my PC i learned all keyboard shortcuts so i can function normally without having to use a mouse. But on my Mac i find it impossible to do anything even browsing the web without using the mouse/touch pad! and that's really bad for my hands.

I am interested in keyboard short cuts that help me tab between fields for example tab from this text box im typing in right now, to the Submit New Thread button.
Im interested i knowing how i can go back to the address bar of the internet browser (equivalent to Win+D in Windows)

if you have a keyboard shortcut guide that you know of please let me know too!

Command+L will move focus to the URL field in most browsers (Safari, Firefox, etc).

Here's a full list of shortcuts for OSX:

Sorry to hear that...but yeah, tmoney nailed it. That's a fairly comprehensive list of all keyboard shortcuts in OS X.

System preferences --> keyboard & mouse --> keyboard short cuts --> Check "All Controls" at bottom of box

It doesn't work for EVERY thing, but it does tab to the next textbox/button most of the time.

Most shortcuts from windows are still the same except they use the open-apple key instead. So it shouldn't all be new.

Now, if anyone can figure out how to make safari switch between tabs by using open-apple and a # instead of OA-[ , let me know!

I'm not aware of any way to switch tabs aside from using Command+Shift+{ or Command+Shift+}.
