In the News NetApplications has released its latest browser market share figures, and these figures show that Chrome has overtaken Safari as the number three browser worldwide, behind Internet Explorer and Firefox. IE, by the way, continues to lose popularity rather fast.

F5 has been a standard feature in IE for a long time. F4 (in IE) is used to show the address bar drop down list ;) and similarly F2 (Desktop) to rename a file where F1 is for Help and F3 (Desktop/IE) for Search.

ESC? Yes, you can use that for Chrome but again it is a standard feature - equivalent to hitting ESC in Windows app (closes the dialog discarding changes) and ESC in BIOS exits the BIOS discarding changes.

Unfortunately I have found (unless I don't know), in order for ESC to close a dialog, one has to code it - it is not automatically linked to the form (Borland, unless I am wrong) so you may find apps that do not follow this standard for various reasons but I like it when they do.
