Walk with W,A,S,D + Window Shortcuts

Instead of having it automatically focus to the chat box, why not just require users to press Enter whenever they need to chat? Plus, a shortcut or hotkey to open certain windows like inventory, stats, etc. would be nice. It comes standard on today's MMORPGs and I'm certain it is possible to implement in JavaScript.

Walking with W,A,S,D is something we are deliberately not integrating.
As it would cause buggy/laggy walking (as the game is tile based) and would require some rigorous changes client side.
I'd like to focus our attention elsewhere for the moment.

Shortcuts ?
have you tried pressing ctrl + i :P, it is already in there.
I'm aware these aren't documented yet, I hope to be able to put up a wiki soon again.

Not against your idea of pressing enter to chat, We'll discuss it.

I never knew that it required Ctrl. It didn't show any tooltips whatsoever. xD And I got used to the typical MMORPG that doesn't require Ctrl / Alt. That partly links to why I'm suggesting pressing enter to chat. Because If you want to open the inventory like pressing "I" without the Ctrl modifier, it would instead go to the chatbox. Since you already said that it requires Ctrl, I guess the Enter thing is not necessary anymore.
