Nice overview without going into the boring stuff which many people tend to go to when talking about keybinding, their personal setup.I'm surprised you didn't mention another somewhat popular method people use (more with FPSs) which is to shift over WASD to ESDF for movement since it provides some additional keys on the left, and the raised portion on "F" (appropriately) makes it easy to know your fingers are in place.I made the change recently, and occasionally I still find my hands off a line one every other day, but I'm in too deep now to go back. Oddly I haven't actually bound any of the extra keys I now have available, but I'm glad to know they're there if I need some.

I was going to post about doing this.As a long time user of E S D F for movement (instead of W A S D) I couldn't agree more with Sejarki. It gives you access to A and W as bind keys, which alone makes it worth the change. As he said, I did this a long time ago as an FPSer, and while it took a couple days to get used to it, it was totally worth the switch.Giving you pinky something else to do is the main benefit, and you'll love the tactile dot on the F key.
