I am using Tmux in my terminal and that means I am typing Ctrl+A a lot.

In Chrome when this happens it selects the entire page and turns it blue.

How can I undo this without having to switch to my mouse to click in the page again?

Doesn't look like your issue is getting much attention. Depending on whether you're willing to go there, you could consider switching browsers (e.g. Esc de-selects text in Opera), or using third-party software (e.g. keyboard software) to simiulate, say, a right-click followed by Esc, if you don't want to use Tab. – Amos M.

Pressing the Tab key works for me. This will move the cursor to the next selectable item but may not be an issue in your case.

Sure, I am still hoping to find an answer that does not scroll the page, though. – Steven Lu Mar 13 '13 at 18:54
