And +1 from a regular user like me :).  When configured with ctags,
vim uses Ctrl-] as the equivalent keyboard shortcut (although gvim
also supports the Ctrl-Click shortcut) and populates a jump stack so
that I can hit Ctrl-T at any point in time and jump back up through
the list of places that I've jumped from -- which I find extremely
useful.  Similarly, Eclipse has back and forward buttons specific to
the editor pane that allow me to navigate back through them.
