Since I switched to a Macbook Pro, I’ve felt the absence of the “Delete” key. It’s not the same as the Backspace key even in text-based applications, let alone in other things such as a web browser.
To the rescue comes Double Command, a Preference Pane add-in that will give you quite a number of options, including the somewhat obvious to my mind “Shift + Backspace acts as delete.”
It has quite a nice way of allowing a System setup, a User setup and a Current setup, and a pretty hefty number of altered key options, however I was happy to just stick to the one change (I’m a big fan of the extra “Enter” key next to the arrow keys, and somewhat miffed that it might disappear).
