Is there button to scroll left/right in browser?

Hi guys,

Just wondering if any of you have found a way of scrolling left and right when in the browser. By this I mean, when you are zoomed into a page to an acceptable reading size, when you press the left/right cursor buttons, it scrolls but only to the next link, so to go to the left/right hand side of the page can take up to 5 clicks before you see the page move left/right.

Is there a button, like page up/page down, that scrolls a page left/right?

Does that make sense?

just keep hitting the left/right buttons when it gets to the edge, it then scrolls.

Yep, I know that but as I said, if there's a lot of links then it takes 4/5 clicks before it starts scrolling as it stops at every link first.

The same for scrolling down using the up/down buttons but you can also scroll up and down using page back/forward and that doesn't stop at the links. I was hoping there's a button that scrolls left and right.

ALT+J (or ALT, J) scrolls right; ALT+H (or ALT, H) scrolls left.
