Cool! I didn't know that.

I just had a quick look at a German HTML reference and it says (if I
understood correctly) that different browsers use different keyboard
modifiers to access the accesskeys. In my version of Firefox (3.0.12)
I need to use Alt+Shift, for example (actually, it says that the same
is true for Firefox 2.x so I'm wondering why just Alt+P works for
you). In any case, it seems that there is no interference with the
'search as you type' feature, so I'd find this pretty cool, too.
