Re: chrome


Some people may be interested in this.  It is somewhat minutia, but the kind of minutia that may interest some people.
In Internet Explorer, the open dialog, control o or control l, is separate from the address bar.  In Chrome and firefox, there is no open dialog and the address bar, f6 control d, control l, is the same.  In other words, you get to the same place with all these commands.  But in Internet Explorer, control d and f6 take you to the address bar.  Control o or control l take you to the open dialog, where you don't see the address of the page you are on.  You have to use f6 or control d to see the page in the address bar.

Also the CTRL key + letter L will jump you to the location bar. I use it all the time in different browsers.

Hi list,


I am using win 7 with nvda and latest chrome.

When I use I e and firefox, I can press f6 and have the address bar highlighted so I can copy and paste it.

When I press f6  in chrome, I land on various things but not the address bar of the current page.

How do I do this.
