website accessibility suggestion (back and next buttons)

Inside the <a> tags for the links to next and previous comics, you could add the attributes rel="prev" and rel="next". These attributes are a feature of the HTML5 standard (see http://blog.whatwg.org/the-road-to-html-5-link-relations#rel-first).

I recently wrote a Chrome extension that lets you use the left and right arrows on the keyboard to navigate websites that support these HTML attributes, and I've been testing it on my favorite sites and webcomics.

Incidentally, the extension works great for navigating through pages in this forum!

If you're curious, the link to download the Chrome extension is here: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/pkjjfohgdkeomfgelibonoddaaioaopg#
and the source code is here: https://github.com/kostmo/Google-Chrome-Keyboard-Site-Navigation

    Huh, that's a pretty cool use of the rel spec. I'd like to see that.

    Hot damn, I've been waiting for this. When I switched from Firefox to Chrome for general browsing, there was a similar plugin that was the only thing I missed about Chrome.

    Edit: especially for these forums, because the page numbers and next/previous links are so damn small.
