OS X Browser Shortcut Cheat Sheet

The browser is arguably the most used application on anyone’s computer and with the onslaught of hundreds (if not thousands) of new web applications, the time spent in said browsers will only increase.

Back in college in my various graphic design classes, one thing that I really took away from all of that was how the use of keyboard shortcuts (or hot keys) really did boost productivity and reduce significantly the amount of time needed to complete tasks over a period of time.

One hindrance to my picking up keyboard shortcuts quickly was lack of documentation…or rather lack of easily accessible documentation. So in this post I’m aiming to provide you some easy-access tools for becoming a browser power-user. Download the tool that fits your setup best…hopefully it will help you in some way!


The Goods

I’ve broken down the keyboard shortcuts by browser and then by download type. If there’s a format that would work better for you, just request it in the comments and I’ll see what I can whip up.
