As I don't think Bug 99624 is a duplicate of this one, I will post there.
So, even in KDE 3.5.1, Left/Right keyboard arrows do not work in Web pages.
This is, of course, because they are assigned to "Previous/Next Article".
IN KDE 3.5.1, pressing Left/Right arrow on a Web page does not change the current article anymore: thanks.
This was obviously wrong because there were no feedback that the article changed and nobody would even want that to happens.
But there is a little better you can do: you can do what users expect Akregator should do:
- Left/Right arrows in article list: move to previous/next article (already do that)
- left/Right arrows in an article tab: scroll horizontaly.
HOW? HERE IS THE TRICK:
When the focused tab is changed to an article one (KHTML view), DISABLE the "Move to Next/Previous Article" actions.
Since those actions will not handle the event anymore, the KHTML view will receive them and do what it should do.
Of course, when going back to the article-list tab, the actions should be re-enabled, and the behaviour is now consistent with KMail and do what people want it to do.
