A lot of users don't know this, but many OS X apps (especially those written by Apple) implement a sub-set of the "emacs" editor command set.
These editing commands are usually introduced by holding the CTRL key, and pressing a letter (I'll use ^ to show this). Some of the most useful are:
^A Move cursor to start of line
^E Move cursor to end of line
^D Delete one character to the right (which is what you asked for)
^K Kill (delete) the rest of the line
And many others!
Amazingly, you can even use these commands to edit the URL address line in Safari.
Learning a handful of these commands can really speed up your use of OS X apps.
