    I'll second what triv already said. Unless you're in a unix shell app, you're not going to use ctrl, you're going to use command, or the apple key.

    IE, Chimera and Mozilla all support cmd-z for undo in textareas. I personally use Mozilla. Chimera had a tendency to crash and had no progress indicator on downloaded files. IE 5.2 for some reason couldn't handle PNG, even though it's supposed to. Mozilla 1.1b here works well, fast and does what I want.

    As for KDE3, I ran it from about a week after 3.0 was rel

    • The biggest annoyance so far in my list is definitely the Ctrl-Z thing. That simply did not work in IE (the default browser) and I had tried every key combination going (I'm not blind to the fact that most key controls are now Command+Letter, rather than Ctrl+Letter). Seems to work in Chimera though, so I'm making that my default browser for now.

        Hmm, the word delete thing seems somewhat variable.

        In the terminal you can use esc-delete to "back-kill" a word. (Guess this is an emacsy binding thing, same as ctl+a, ctl+e and so forth.)

        Explorer seems to obey the option+delete (== alt+delete) command fine, as do several other applications I tried (the Finder, for example, when you're editing a filename). Chimera, too, seems to behave as expected in this respect, and even takes out the intervening space, unlike IE.

        Not terribly consistent I'm afraid.
