Web NavigationKeys

With the A30 IBM introduced those 6 programmable extra keys for web navigation. They only lasted throughout the four models of this series since the A series was discontinued after the A31p.

The keys are freely configurable, but their default purposes (expressed by their labelling) are:

  • Mail (blue in i Series models)
  • Homepage (red in i Series models)
  • Search (green in i Series models)
  • Favorites
  • Reload
  • Abort

Linux support

See the Special Keys HOWTO to see how to configure these keys.
