Ultimate Mouse-Fu

Greetings. LifeHacker has had many articles on AutoHotKey and I've created many shortcuts (rocker gestures for programs that don't support them out of the box for example). After doing this for several weeks I've conceived of the ultimate mouse-fu: when you only have to go to the keyboard to type a whole word or more.

As an example, I've rigged my mouse to:
  • Do Ctrl-(Shift)-Tab
  • Do Alt-(Shift)-Tab
  • Copy
  • Paste
  • Delete
  • Enter (for form posts mostly)
  • Undo
  • Find (Ctrl-F)
I'm getting close to mouse nirvana and recommend this heartily. Also a 5 button mouse is also a great boon to this endevor.

Keep Hackin'.
