How to use the internet without a mouse?
My mouse is broken and so I'm using the internet right now without it.

Is there a way I can move the pointer and click on objects with the pointer?

The browsers I have are Netscape Navigator and Internet Explorer.

Windows operating system.

3. Tab to move between links, etc. Enter to "click" on what you have selected.

And if you're a fan of Firefox tabbed browsing, Ctrl + Tab to switch between tabs.
