[Shift+left/right arrows] is just analogous with the way you move
between virtual ttys in Linux: [Alt+Left/right arrow].  In the window
manager I use [WindowsKey+arrows] to move between virtual desktops.

C-Tab and C-S-Tab are another obvious choice; they would move
between emacs frames in the same way as you move between firefox tabs.

;; navigate frames
(defun other-frame-dec () "" (interactive) (other-frame '+1))
(defun other-frame-inc () "" (interactive) (other-frame '-1))
(global-set-key [C-iso-lefttab] 'other-frame-inc)
(global-set-key [C-S-iso-lefttab] 'other-frame-dec)

(setq pop-up-frames t) is for never having the frame split in two
windows.  Having two windows in the same frame is the default emacs
behaviour and may be ok for very big screens, but for a small screen
with a big font is not good.

In any case, all these things are a matter of personal taste, and
fortunately emacs gives a lot of freedom to the user to configure
them.  No other program out there gets even close to give the freedom
emacs gives.
