Known Browser issues:
This script is somewhat browser dependent and different browsers different issues may appear.
-In Joomla 2.5.x, if article form is not valid default behavior for shortcuts is not prevented
-Shortcuts not accessible when focused on TinyMCE editor
-CTRL+N will not work
Never again I'll have to use the mouse just to do a fast save. It annoyed me so much that Joomla doesn't have such shortcuts built in.
Today I finally had the idea to find out if someone built such an extension.
And here it is. Great work. Thank you!
