    I wonder how many mouses (mice??) are now broken due to 2 hours of constant and frantic 'refresh page' clicking?

    Or you can use this:

    Bping - The Ping That Beeps

    It will run a continuous ping to the site when it's down and as soon as the site is back up it will start beeping. You can just leave it running in the back ground and get on with erm..... work!

    Do you know that if you press the Delete button is gets rid of what you have typed? Think of it like computer Tipp-Ex.

    The MOST useful shortcut by FAR is holding down Ctrl and then pressing W.

    Puts your browser into fast mode.
