You can of course reconfigure that to something that
doesn't involve reaching for the arrow keys. I had to
do that with w3m because they also had long and far
keystrokes for moving between the tabs as
default. This was even more bizarre since w3m isn't a
"type mode" - the entire keyboard (including single
keys: "a", "f", etc.) is available! I found that "j"
and "l" are good chaises for horizontal movement, and
likewise "i" and "k" for vertical. Again, where they
are on they keyboard, and where your fingers
are... With tabs, and a buffer you'd type in, you'll
need a prefix, of course, but the rest is applicable
just the same...
