    Please forgive me if this is a dumb question, but I'm looking for:

    "Forward" key - for example, in a browser, if I hit the back button in the lower left corner of the phone by mistake and need to go forward again

    "Tab"/"Control" keys - when using the ssh app ("ConnectBot", in this case) to talk to my Linux systems, I need to have tab-completion and the control keys available.

    Where are they? ;-)

    In the Browser, the Forward option is on the menu. So click the Menu 'button', and you'll see it.

    I'm not sure about tab.....but, to go forward in the browser, just hit the menu key and it's in there. ctrl is the arrow pointing at the line (on the 'A' key) *i think* :)

    Dilligaf? Or are you someone else with the same name?

    Wouln't the Alt + A key combination accomplish the same thing as the Tab key on a regular keypad.

    That's what I thought, but it doesn't seem to work, either in the terminal app or the ssh client, talking to machines which have tab-completion enabled natively.

    Ha- you must have me confused with someone else who doesn't GAF either. ;-D

    Thanks for the reply; I'm using the Dolphin browser, and there, it's two levels into the menu.

    Haha, I guess. I didn't think anyone else stole the word.
