Edit By BS Editor: Click links by hitting hints! A keyboard friendly navigation method.
HaH and Surfkeys projects aim to make web surfing with a keyboard as usable as possible.
Just with one hand!?

Many Modern user Interfaces have been planned mouse users in mind. There are a lot of "clickable" elements in GUI's, for example buttons, form elements, images, links in web browsers, etc. However, swapping your hand between a keyboard and a mouse is usually not too ergonomic, and many people using computers a lot prefer the keyboard to the mouse. There are also new applications that cannot easily be used with a mouse, e.g. mobile phones and PDAs (without a touch screen) let alone laptops (with the horrible touchpads and fingerpointers) and digital television web browsers with remote control. Finally, disabled people (or just lazy, like me) have problems using these mouse oriented systems at all.

Therefore I like to present a new (AFAIK) idea for "clicking". Pressing a specified button will activate a HaH-mode (Hit-a-Hint), which means that all "clickable" elements in the area will get a hovering hint over them. This hint has a number, and when that number is entered, the corresponing element is to be "clicked".

Mozilla and Firefox are the first web browsers with "Find as you type" or formerly "Type ahead find" functions to search links in a web page. This feature has been a salvation for keyboard users, because using only arrow or tab keys in navigation is many times even slower than with the mouse. However, there are some disadvantages. Usually an user selects some part of the word of a selected Link, starts typing, and a best matching link is selected when typing.

Why is it not enough?
Regardless of its greatness, "Find as you type" has some disadvantages.
