Can we have the same hotkey while typing a new answer (instead of having to press Tab, Enter)?

I'm glad <kbd> is back on meta. – SLaks Nov 22 '11 at 17:40
If I use tab + enter, I am sent to http://meta.stackoverflow.com/search?q=. – kiamlaluno Nov 22 '11 at 18:46
@kiamlaluno: I mean from within the answer box, after you finish typing. – SLaks Nov 22 '11 at 18:48
If I do it from the "Your Answer" text area, I highlight the browser's text box for the URL. – kiamlaluno Nov 22 '11 at 18:51
@kiamlaluno: What browser are you using? – SLaks Nov 22 '11 at 18:52
I am using Safari 5.1.1 on Mac OS X 10.7.2. Actually, not even "control + tab" has the effect you are describing, for me; I even tried using another modifier, instead of the control key, but the effect is always the same: I move the text cursor to a new line. – kiamlaluno Nov 22 '11 at 18:53
It works for me on Windows. You just made my question stronger, since Mac users can't even use Tab, Enter. – SLaks Nov 22 '11 at 18:54
