I use Firefox 3.x for much of my browsing and I constantly use the tab key (easy to hit) to select from my address history. When I use Opera, tab takes me to the Search box, which of course makes perfect sense. I could try to undo years of training and use down-arrow but first I thought that I see if Opera is secretly configurable.

You're looking for something like auto-complete for a URL? – random Oct 14 '09 at 4:00
I don't understand what you want :( – telebog Oct 14 '09 at 8:04

In Opera:

  • choose Tools from the menu
  • and then Preferences.
  • Now goto Shortcuts and
  • highlight your current keyboard setup in the lower box.
  • Next, click on Edit....
  • Now unfold the Advanced item (last one in the list)
  • and then the Address dropdown Widget item (again the last one).
  • Now find the entry for "Next item"
  • and double-click on the right part where it should currently say "Down".
  • Replace "Down" with "Tab" and you're set.
