in thread web-based application or desktop application?

FWIW, you can do hot keys after a fashion by using the HTML accesskey attribute.

example:

<p><a accesskey="p" ref="http://www.perlmonks.org">Perl monks</a></p>

How well this works depends on how well it is implemented in the browser, but with mozilla at least I can hit ALT+p to *click* the link. IIRC this doesn't work as nicely using IE.

    Mozilla has one very nice feature in that if you see a link you want, say 'free beer', if you start to type f-r-e-e it will then jump to the links on the page that match what your typing. Pressing return follows the link.
