    I am new to mac and learned that there are lots of keyboard shortcuts, but there also lots of trackpad functionalities, which do you use more often?

    For me, I'm beginning to like the keyboard shortcuts but cant memorize it all..
    Let me know your choice fellow mac lovers....;) ;)

    I don't have multitouch, but I've gotten to using Keyboard shortcuts when I use Safari and some of them have crossed over into general use.

    Cmd-T: Open new tab
    Cmd-W: Close Tab (Will also close windows in finder)
    Cmd-Q: Quit App
    Cmd-S: Save page (Works as save for a lot of Apps)
    Cmd-D: Bookmark page
    Cmd-R: Reload Page.

    I never use the mouse/trackpad for any of these functions anymore.

    sometimes the more functions you assign to the trackpad, it complicates the use of it more and sometimes it even actually slows the user down instead of helping, but thats just my opinion.

    I dont have multitouch, Macwhite owner here, so I use most keyboard shortcuts Raf mentioned above. For Safari, I like using: Cmd+shift+arrow keys--browse thru tabs

    I like the trackpad when using VLC, two fingers scroll up/down for volume, two fingers scroll left/right-rewind/fast forward.

    What is multiclutch? Sorry, ngaun ko lang narinig, hehe..
