Is there a way to navigate the questions and answers via the keyboard? I'm thinking of something like what gmail does.

I'd rather not depend on a Greasemonkey script if I have to.

Do you mean in a similar manner to Google Reader, and Gmail? – Brad Gilbert Jul 4 '09 at 14:42
Either one actually since they are similar in their core navigation via keyboard. j/k to go down/up the questions, o to open, r to answer/reply, c to comment...and then j/k to go down/up the answers on a question page. s to star/favorite it. uhm...+/- to up/down vote? – seth Jul 5 '09 at 6:41
Would really like to see this. – Chadwick Aug 20 '10 at 23:12
Keyboard shortcuts for next/previous answer would be extremely helpful for a question with a lot of answers. See… for an over-the-board (but still helpful) example. – Geoffrey Zheng Sep 22 '10 at 19:34
This has been requested in a question with a surprisingly similar ID. – Jan Fabry May 27 '11 at 15:46

I have not seen any real method of keyboard navigation outside of your standard keyboard navigation for the web browser, and this has a tendency to skip over some things like the vote mechanisms and other AJAX-esque elements.
