Nokia’s N900 comes with a web browser called Microb which is based on the Mozilla code base but was written by Nokia for Maemo to run on smart phones. There weren’t any instructions that came with it so I thought I’d create some here. While the browser is active there are several operations that may be initiated by pressing a combination of the control key and a letter. I started looking because I really missed control+u that my desktop Firefox supports in order to display the source code of a web page. Control+u didn’t work so I went off looking for its equivalent. The control+? key press will only register when the address bar is not being displayed. If the address bar is visible the control+? key press will have no effect.
- a - select all text on the page.
- b - opens your bookmarks.
- c - does nothing; doesn’t even open the address bar.
- d - add current page to your bookmarks or as a shortcut on the desktop.
- f - find text on page.
- n - opens a new browser window.
- r - reload the page.
- s - save page locally.
- o - open local file.
- x - does nothing; doesn’t even open the address bar.
- z - does nothing; doesn’t even open the address bar.
