[macvoiceover] Re: quick nav or not to quick nav: was: Re: Re: links in mail

I think QuickNav is great for navigating long websites, just because you don't

best to use the VO keys. I find myself using the trackpad commander a lot, 
though. What I never ever used or needed is an external numpad...
