Using Keyboard Shortcuts in GMail

I've found the custom keyboard shortcuts lab in GMail pretty good at making the UI experience (geek?) friendly and comes closer to the simple interface of the good old Unix text-based email clients such as pine (which I loved :-), mutt etc.

Enable the following two labs in GMail:
- Custom keyboard shortcuts
- Go to label

Under settings, configure shortcuts similar to the ones in pine. A carefully chosen set of shortcuts will eliminate the need for using the mouse in your GMail experience for the most part.
