Keyboard Shortcuts for Android Phone/Tablet

  • I have to use Chrome on my tablet because of the lack of keyboard shortcuts in Opera browser on the phone. I often am scrolling for hours on my tablet, switching back and forth between tabs and/or entering complex equations in tiny Google Sheets cells. Using my finger for everything and positioning my tablet within right arm's reach is inaccurate, error prone and physically taxing.

    A few basic keyboard shortcuts would improve things mightily for me. Opera is so good for shortcuts in the desktop/laptop browser, where I've been using Opera since 2002. When are we going to get keyboard shortcuts on Android?

  • In the old version there were a few keyboard shortcuts - but for phone keyboards (digits, * and # ). No idea on the current Chromium-based versions, but as my tablet has an attached QWERTY keyboard I'd appreciate them.
