Set refresh to F5 key

Most tools use F5 key to refesh it's screen/data. It would be nice, if also QGIS would follow this standard, as this is what the (novice) user might expect.

I believe that you can set it by yourself through Settings - Edit shortcuts. By the way, I just learned from you that F5 would do update/refresh since 25+ years of experience on using various programs. I am remembering that in WordPerfect F5 did "Find file".

Hi Jürgen, I seen your commit, it is perfect but I did not change the default refresh-key in 'qgisapp.ui' in order to be consistent with the current action refresh of qbrowser (See mActionRefresh in 'qgsbrowserbase.ui' and line 222 in 'ui_qgsbrowserbase.h') and to preserve the behavior that current users may be accustomed to using.
If I may comment, I would recommend then also change the settings of qbrowser, or just add F5 as extra key-refresh of mapcanvas as I did preserving the current behavior of 'CTRL+R' key.
