Summary0002694: feature request: scroll down a page with space bar
DescriptionIn other browsers, when the keyboard focus isn't in a text widget, hitting the space bar scrolls down by one page. This would be helpful to have in netsurf.

BTW, the "Product Version" field in the bug report form doesn't offer 3.10 as an option, but that's what I'm using (compiled today from git).

To do this properly, and we would like to, the right thing is to move all of the up/down/left/right/pgup/pgdown/home/end stuff into browser_window rather than having it handled in the frontends as it currently is.

In doing this, `browser_window_key_pres()` should move out of `desktop/textinput.c` and into `desktop/browser_window.c"
