    I recently learnt that

    - 'Ctrl and +' lets you zoom in.

    - Pressing the 'end' key scrolls you to the end of lo-o-ong thread.

    - Pressing F5 refeshes the page.

    Any other tips for coping with Realjock? I don't expect many replies, but if any come, you might just change my life forever. Lol.

    Those are general web browser shortcuts and work on all pages. If you're using Firefox, here are a few more.

    - Text resizing (zooming).. CTRL + mouse scroll wheel
    - CTRL + 0 (zero), resets the text back to normal.
    - CTRL + F, search for words on a page
    - CTRL + G, searched again
    - Middle-click on a link, opens the URL in a new tab.
    - CTRL + T, new tab.
    - CTRL + W, closes current tab
    - CTRL + 1...9, switches directly to that particular tab
    - Home, takes you to the top of the page
    - Page Up and Page Down scrolls through a long web, one page at a time
    - CTRL + K, moves your cursor to the web search box
    - CTRL + L, moves your cursor to the URL bar.
    - CTRL + SHIFT + DELETE, will delete your URL history, cache, cookies. Handy if you're on a public computer. Be careful when you use it at home. You will have to re-login to your favorite websites and you will lose your some personal settings that use cookies.

    Once again, the above are for Firefox. Not sure if they work for Internet Explorer.

    Brilliant. Makes a big difference when you know how to use your keyboard doesn't it? ;) I like the Ctrl + T trick.

    Pressing the 'End' key in long threads makes them manageable, before I used to skip them if they were over 100 posts.

    I've pressed F11 on university computers loads, not known what I've done and spent ages trying to get it back to normal screen - so that's a bit of a life saver.

    I'm totally geeking out here.

    You is smart. Psst. Those are BROWSER keyboard shortcuts that work on ANY page. Various browsers have various shortcuts.

    nope...those tips work on IE, Firefox, Safari and Chrome. I cannot tell you about Opera but there shouldnt be any difference, not at least with these basic ones.

    I know. It's just I'm stamping the Realjock brand all over my thread.

    Although keyboard short cuts that only work only on gay websites? Could be comedy.

    Ctrl + G, makes the screen the GAY.

    Since this seems to be kind of a potential tech support thread for Realjock I'll ask this question:

    I've noticed that if I go into the chat room and then leave, it still shows that I'm in the room. Has anyone else noticed that? Well you wouldn't notice it unless someone else told you or you re-enter the room and notice your time in the room never reset to 0. Does anyone know if there are settings you can change in your browser to help with that? I"m using a Windows XP PC with IE 7.

    Any feature will always depend on the browser version, when I say IE, Firefox and Safari I am obviously talking about their latest stable versions.
