Iron Browser Trick,should work on Chrome/Chromium
I've always been a little up tight when coming to this forum using my EEEPC that I run Iron Browser on.
Pages would be cut off to the right and Ctrl - was a poor way to maneuver
around. Small screen so small text.
Today.I for a experiment/kicks. Started tapping my tab key while on main page and in posts. Cool.
I had the page move to the right like using the right arrow key in Iceape.
I am a happy camper now.

Thanks for the Feedback and posting a helpful tip too, Roky. But wait a minute here. Are you telling me that the Tab button works on this forum now?(Known forum bug)
*Just tested* nope, it's still dead to me.
I suppose you meant that you can just move the screen with the tab button by highlighting the links so that the page moves left/right?
The (Tab button) breakage for me occurs when I am typing a reply to a thread, I used to be able to type my reply out and press the Tab button once to highlight the "post quick reply" button and press space bar once to submit my post rather than having to type everything out then reach for my mouse and locate the cursor.(I really don't enjoy using a mouse)

I am talking about using tab button to move forum page to the right when cut off on screen MikeTbob. It works when I am in search section and also reading posts. I have only tested this in Iron Browser, which I figure has the same guts in a sense as Chrome or Chromium. When I boot up one of my other computers that has Chrome installed. I will post back to inform if it works there also.

I can't figure out what you guys mean by tabbing, but I am using a crappy old laptop with a 1024x768 display and Firefox and the tab key does nothing useful for me. I do get cut off to the right like Roky described but I can use the right arrow key to sidle on over.

On my Mozilla browsers Like Seamonkey, Iceape, (I don't run firefox anymore), the right arrow key is what works to bring the page to the right atreyu. Only in non Mozilla browsers so far is what i use the tab key for beacuse the right arrow key does not work in non Mozilla browsers so far.

Finally tested Chromium 15.0.874.106 (Developer Build 107270 Linux) Ubuntu 10.04 and the tab trick works in it also.
This is on a 9" Acer Aspire One ZG5 screen which also cuts off the r/h side of forum pages.
