It's a hidden trick someplace and I don't understand why it'd disabled by default; how do you enable accesskeys in Opera? Also they are not working in Firefox and only seem to work in IE at the moment.

In Opera, press shift and esc. That brings up the access key list for the current page. Then you can press any number from the access key list to follow the respective link.

In FF, press alt and a number, it follows the respective link assigned to the access key.

navjotpawera, Opera works and thanks for that.

I'm not following you with Firefox though. Use numbers for accesskeys? ALT+2 didn't work with accesskey="2" though I have been using only letters. I can't get accesskey="f" to work with ALT+F.

In an answer to my own question in regards to Firefox (for future readers) you have to hold ALT+SHIFT+Key.

HTML
accesskey="f"

Keyboard
ALT+SHIFT+f

*Edit*

Additionally, for those who (like myself) feel ALT+SHIFT is a retarded inconsistency you can change it back to ALT+letter by following the directions on this thread on the Mozillazine forum...
