You probably didn't even think that you can use Wikipedia through keyboard shortcuts, but that's possible. Though most of the shortcuts are useful for Wikipedia editors, there are a few good ones for readers, too. For example you can press Alt + X to go to a random article and Alt + R to see list of recent changes.

Information: To use most Wikipedia keyboard shortcuts, you first need to hold down "modifier" keys. These keys differ in various web browsers. Please use this list to determine a valid key combination for your browser.
