I don't think so. I do the same thing myself, but the laypeople I know I 
do NOT think would do that. Even were they to think of it, it very 
easily can be complicated. I have observed recently two laypeople who 
were not aware (in the least apparently) that the average web form can 
be submitted via the Enter key--the use the mouse instead.

If people are not aware of such simple time-saving features common to 
all browsers, I do not expect them to start using advanced features 
anytime soon.
