Maybe you're right, but whoever is right, I never, never use keyboard
shortcuts on a such complex UI than Views UI, too dangerous.

So if you're right, to ensure the enter key behavior on all browsers
catching the key event seems to be the only one solution that can really

My first idea was to force the browser to submit the right button when
it submits the form using the enter key to ensure that end user won't be

submit, this is two different statements.
