In Firefox, while focused on a drop-down box, use ALT-DOWN would display the list so that user can navigate.

But in Chrome, ALT-DOWN does not work, I can only use UP/DOWN to navigate per entry.


I don't believe there's a shortcut to do that. It's not listed in the Chrome Keyboard Shortcuts list and I tried every shortcut I could think of in the latest dev Chrome with no success. I didn't see any issues addressing it in the Chrome issues database so I created one - issue 73349.

  • Alt+Down is not a hotkey in FireFox, it is a Windows keyboard combination (try it in the Run dialog or in Explorer’s address-bar). The problem is that Chrome uses a custom drop-list control from Webkit (for cross-platform compatibility) as opposed to the common-control from Windows. – Synetech Mar 4 '11 at 2:04
