How to move about without a mouse

On a computer. My mouse has been acting up lately, so I've been moving about the computer without it because it's easier usually. Just hit "Tab" until you get to the link you want... it'll even take you to the URL place in time. Then on XP at least, if you want to change windows, just hold down alt and hit tab until you get to the window you want to be on. It's cool, I think. :-)

I usually use Lynx, which has even better keyboard control at the price of only displaying text.

If your mouse is malfy, you probably also want to turn on MouseKeys (I think that's what they called it) - it hides in the handicapped accessibility featurehole and lets you use the numpad as a mouse; while usually more of a pain than tab, it helps with those programs whose tab navigation doesn't work right.
