|0002581||NetSurf||GTK-specific||public||2017-12-06 15:52||2018-04-21 10:11|
|Assigned To||Vincent Sanders|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version|
|Summary||0002581: Poor choice of keybindings in the GTK front-end|
|Description||NetSurf uses Ctrl-Left and Ctrl-Right keybindings for tab switching, unlike most other browsers which use Ctrl-PgUp and Ctrl-PgDn for that purpose. Usurping the Ctrl-Left and Ctrl-Right keybindings makes it impossible to use them for navigating between words in text fields and breaks expectations brought from other GTK programs. NetSurf offers no functionality to change this behaviour.|
|Steps To Reproduce||0. Click on an text input field of a random GTK application.|
1. Input some random words.
2. Try pressing Ctrl-Left and Ctrl-Right.
3. Observe the caret navigating between words.
4. Open a couple of tabs in NetSurf.
5. Click on the location bar.
6. Try pressing Ctrl-Left and Ctrl-Right.
7. Notice discrepancy in behaviour.

|Thank you for your bug report. We have confirmed this and agree that C-PgUp and C-PgDn (and perhaps C-Tab) would be much better than the current C-Left and C-Right. We will fix this when we can.|
