Keyboard shortcuts in web apps

I’ve started using the keyboard shortcuts in Bloglines more and more. Thankfully, they share the J and K keys for next and previous item with Gmail. (I believe this is from vi, mnemonics are jump and klimb). S jumps to the next subscription, and R refreshes the list of subs.

This is incredibly useful. I find myself reaching for the keyboard when reading blogs with lots of entries, and of course when using spit Outlook Web Abscess. Naturally, even if MS discovers keyboard accelerators, they will most definitely not be industry standard and we can expect to see them in 2009.
