No, Squeak is not fairly typical. You can however use emacs key bindings or the wonderful svi package so that the browsers feel more like the powerful text editors you are used to.

The point about the image though is not so much that you lose those things, it's that the productivity gain you experience FAR OUTWEIGHS what you "lose".
