Keyboard shortcuts for G+:

j: next post

left arrow: show list of pages

Display three columns. Most Web browsers will display the new multicolumn stream as two columns. However, you can actually go up to three columns by widening your browser's screen, as long as you have a display that supports a width of greater than 1,550 pixels.
Quickly return to the top. After scrolling down to view posts in your stream, you can quickly return to the top by clicking on any free space in the condensed menu bar.
Show Google bar, search box, circles, and so on. When scrolling down the stream, the Google bar, search box, profile photo, and circles disappear in favor of the condensed menu bar. To display those items again, you don't have to scroll all the way back to the top. Scrolling your mouse wheel up a few lines will redisplay the full menu. If you're using a touch pad, scroll up quickly to redisplay it.
That's it. If you happen to find any other cool navigation tips, please share them with us in the comments.
