Stop Google from hijacking arrow key presses on Search Result pages

If, like me, you use the arrow keys to scroll, or command key with an arrow key to scroll to the top or bottom of webpages on a daily basis, then you’ve been burned recently by google’s “helpful” new keyboard navigation on Search Result pages.

Yes, google thought it would be just a great idea to make their website the only one of the frickin internet that takes over our arrow keys and makes them much less useful.

Anyway, this guy ZimZat hated it too, so he made a Chrome extension called Arrow Key Guard to fix the problem.

If you’re not using Chrome, I don’t care, you have bigger problems anyway and you probably don’t use your keyboard for anything but typing shit about your cat into MS Powerpoint rainbow colored word-art objects anyway.
