I was wondering if there is a way to navigate to web pages in a browser( no matter which one this facility is worth being forced to change the browser! ) using keyboard shortcuts for example if I pushed a specific combination of keys then I would be redirected to yahoo or Google!

You can do this in Firefox by installing SiteLauncher addon.

SiteLauncher is an add-on for Firefox that gives you a super-quick way to to open your favorite websites using only your keyboard. One special hotkey brings up the 'Launcher', followed by a unique key to launch a site.

Default hotkey is Ctrl+Space (or Ctrl+Alt for Mac users)

thnx but this add-on only shows 100 pages from google search results.does it need any settings to load all of them? – Nobody Sep 8 '10 at 12:30

In Safari on the Mac, Cmd-1 through Cmd-9 take you to the first (through ninth) individual bookmark in your bookmarks bar. Multi-item "folders"/menus in the bookmarks bar are skipped. This works even if your bookmarks bar isn't currently showing.

Not directly a keyboard shortcut, but to save on mouse clicks when browsing the web I highly recommend the free iMacros browser addons. They are available for Firefox, Chrome and IE. You record a certain browing sequence and can then replay it anytime with a button or mouse click.
