Then I'd have to put the TAB in the place where CTRL is now next to the
ALT, which is a bit odd. Either way it is always a bit strange.

Its already like this, not?

I have place for two extra 'fire' buttons as you can see. But I have to
attach an Illume keyboard 'key'-command to them. If you can figure out
what the joystick shoot/jump is.

But usually it is the other way around, in the game you can configure
your keys. So I could place a (left and right) shift/ctrl/alt key which
can be used as shoot/jump.

As I see it now, Illume has no left or right shift/ctrl/alt, and also no
auto release for shift/ctrl/alt. See trac issue

For now, I will keep the browse keybaord as is. Thanks for your feedback.
