##Arrow Navigation Arrow Navigation is the most powerful feature of this extension, you can go through the story links using just your up/right arrow keys and open/vote up/view author/view comments as you like.
You can move the arrow up and down using your arrow keys, then you may choose to:
|ctrl(⌘)+enter||open current link in new tab|
|v||vote it up|
|a||select its submitter(which you can then use ctrl+enter to open in new tab)|
|c||select its comments|
And pressing "esc" key will turn off Arrow Navigation mode.
##Page Switching Switching pages with Hackercut is just one key press away:
|right arrow key||next page|
|w||"show hn" page|
|h||Hacker News front page|
|p||"my profile" page|
*arrow navigation does not work on "comments" and "threads" pages at this moment.
I hope you can better enjoy Hacker News with Hackercut.
