Doing my part to share the knowledge around, a lot of people have requested that I do more to post alternative operating system keyboard combinations here.
So, for those of you who live the Apple lifestyle, here is the way you can navigate around the navigation bar without having to ever lay your fingers on your one button mouse. If you know of any more (because as you can see, I am not a big Apple user) please share in the comments. Would love to build up a database of more keyboard shortcuts for everybody to use.
