What is Forward Delete?

Forward Delete is a small extension letting you use that mysterious key called forward delete, present on all Extended Keyboards, which is used to delete the character at the right of the insertion point.

It also makes shift-delete equivalent to the forward delete key, so that this feature is now available to all Mac users.

Forward Delete also allows the use of the Apple-approved key combinations option-delete and option-forward delete to delete entire words (interestingly enough, Apple made option-delete work inside the Macsbug debugger).

It works with every application using TextEdit (if you do not know what TextEdit is, do not worry: it is simply that part of the Mac Operating System which manages basic text editing). Try it out in the Finder or in dialog boxes.
