For touch-typists, the control-key versions allow you to keep your hands
in the `home row' position.  This means that they're both faster and
easier to use, and interfere less with normal typing.

[personally, I use both -- the control-key versions usually, and
the arrow keys when I'm just browsing in gnus or something]
