How big are these downloads ?
Can BB do internet facilities, like full http fetch, eg. http[S], and
various transmit authorisations for emailing ?

Re. hot keys: is there a trend away from 'heads up' mouse

The <F8> of N-O on start up is appropriate because it's
done only once.   The only high frequency Key-function of N-O, is
<F1 = mark>, which would be nicer to be at <esc>.
eg. for 'blind use'.
