Next On…

In talking about the Google Chrome introductory comic Jon Hicks mentions a feature of Omniweb that’s completely new to me:

The comic site itself highlights another web problem—loads of ‘next’ links, something Omniweb solves with a magical press of the enter key, and I’d love to see implemented in other browsers.

Keen. Until those other browsers implement such a feature I’ve thrown together two simple JavaScript bookmarklets that when invoked (say via the command + [1-9] key command in Safari) go to the url specified by any detected next or previous links.

Prev and Next

I have them mapped to command + 3 and command + 4 respectively in Safari.
