Feature Request: Goto Next/Previous Caret Position

I love ReSharper and can't live without it. But I do miss some of the features
I have in my Java IDE (sorry it's Eclipse these days).

One of the things I use the most is Alt-Left Arrow/Alt-Right Arrow to navigate
my code like I navigate the forward/back of my web browser. I like to be
able to flip back and forth a lot between files and within files. It's essentially
a history of the caret position. When I navigate to another file, I can
go back to where I was, but also, when I navigate to a method declaration
within the same file, I should be able to go back to where I was within the
file. It's invaluable when looking at new code or reviewing old code.

Also, I really would like something akin to Eclipse's ctrl-left click on
a method to go to the declaration (and makes it appear like a hyperlink).
I know I can use the keyboard shortcut, and I'll likely get in a habit of
doing that. It's just nice to have when you're using the mouse a lot (esp
when reviewing/learning code) rather than the keyboard (writing code).

Thanks

I've submitted a request for this feature to our tracker:

We've got this request a long before, and the only reason it has not been
implemented is
some technical difficulties intercepting mouse clicks from Visual Studio.
This feature will definitely be
in ReSharper IDE and most likely in the next version of the ReSharper
add-in.

Thanks
