Google Ctrl-Arrow Greasemonkey script 

Google Ctrl-Arrow is a Greasemonkey script for Mozilla Firefox, which allows you to navigate Google search results using keyboard. Currently Web, Images, Groups and News search services are supported.

This script is compatible with CustomizeGoogle Extension and fixes its onresize update issue for images.google.com. If CustomizeGoogle, GCA script emulates its function and rewrites image links to point stright to original images.

Now supports Google redesign userscripts with style autodetection!
