Unfortunately, switching from alt-arrow to alt-bracket is a headache, because it's been the standard on both browsers since 2 or 3.0, any shortcut buttons on a keyboard or on a touchpad will be rendered useless. As an example, my touchpad has a feature where if I drag my finger to the left at the very top, it'll go back a page, if I drag it right, it'll go forward. It's very convenient. There's also plenty of "internet keyboards" and such that have back and forward buttons on them. Yes, it's only a convenience, but I see no real reason to make this change, and if it keeps even one person (me) from using the browser, why bother?

As an aside, alt+[ doesn't work to make the browser go back, though alt+h finally allows me to go home. This is on the Win32 platform, other platforms may vary.
