Cntrl + F5 for server Reload. Thats great. But this shortcut is available at in ie also. Your Cntrl + Shift + Tab was so great. Thanks for that...

Ctrl + F5 forces a server refresh.
ie. all the page elements are requested from the server again.

F5 might reload from browser cache if the browser thinks it has a recent enough copy.

btw, as long as we are talking about shortcuts, Opera is the king :)
For eg, if you enable single key shortcuts in Opera, '1' goes to the next tab, '2' to the previous tab. I use that one so often.
