add keyboard shortcut to jump to last message in the channel
When switching to a channel after a long hiatus, it is common to have many unread messages in it. Often, old messages are not very important any more, and the user wants to immedately scroll to the end of the list, and maybe from there check the last 2-3 pages (or days) of messages.
This is commonly done with the CTRL+END shortcut on windows.
Note: it seems that a hackish workaround is currently to switch to the channel, switch to another channel, and then come back. The second switch marks all old messages as read, and the 3rd will position the user at the end of the list. This is definitely not intuitive and hard to find out
