I was thrilled by the Next shortcut in Opera.

But when it went away with an upgrade, I wasn't sufficiently
distraught that I downgraded again, or even that I figured out how to
customize the UI and get it back.  So this particular feature has been
tried, but quite found compelling.

That said, the reason it went away with the upgrade is that Opera was
trying to harmonize their keyboard shortcuts with MSIE -- having a
list of "standard" shortcut keys might have prevented this from
becoming a problem in the first place.
