'S' to slow down. I'm not even joking, it's so underrated. As long as there's no imminent danger of torps and planes, it's often pointless to go full speed ahead when playing aggressively - slowing down and keeping your angles, sometimes even moving backwards helped me a bunch. Obviously that's very situational, but also you can beach yourself intentionally to avoid some torps. 

 

There's also the right mouse click by default I believe, which zooms out away from your ship. If you're constantly zoomed in and have problems with tunnel vision (running into ships, not paying enough attention), then start using it.

 

Spam '+' to turn your mini map into mega map, if you don't have 200% eyesight.

Hold right mouse button to rotate the camera in any direction without turning your turrets. Let go of the right mouse button and you'll be returned to the direction in which your turrets are facing. Ctrl+x works better for me though.
