Google Tells You How It's Done...or at least how it SHOULD be done! - 01/08/09 01:52 PM
Joni Mueller, of Pixelita Designs LLC, (http://www.pixelita.com) just brought to my attention that in November of 2008, Google put out an ebook type webmaster's resource.

(These are for PC users only) I hate scrolling to the top or bottom of pages to find the navigation links that I need...so I use the END and HOME keys on my keyboard instead. Do you use your right click on your mouse for Copy, Cut and Paste functions? Sometimes it's easier and faster to use CTRL + C (copy), CTRL + X (2 comments)
