I find it very frustrating when I have to work without MouseAxess ;-)

Yes. I would like to be able to change fonts quickly. Not because I like to
switch fonts, but because sometimes different encodings are being used.
E.g. some Russian sites use koi8-r (the defacto standard) while others
use code page 1251 (windows). Trying to read a webpage with a font in a
wrong encoding, is a bit difficult. :-/
I guess Unicode would be a much better solution... but until everyone
uses Unicode, I would like to be able to select another font (different
encoding) with a few mouseclicks.
