Do you mean the use of C-f to go one character forward?  I think it's
a relic of the time when keyboards did not have arrow keys.  Now, most
keyboards do and you can also go a character forward with the right
arrow key.  Quite a number of people still use the C-f variant since
the control and the f key are usually closer at hand.
