Handy text selection

I just discovered great Chrome text selecting feature.
When I double-click on text, the word is selected. It's common.
Moving the mouse while having left button pressed change the selection. It's common too.
But you can use keyboard arrow keys together with Shift key to select text more precisely than using just the mouse.
It's really handy especially when I am travelling and not using mouse but touchpad, which is not very precise device.
