I am a user who more likely depends on Keyboard shortcuts on non-touchscreen based computers. The problem I see is that when I want to switch tabs quickly, I have to move the cursor by the trackpad to the tabs and then switch between tabs which would have been easy if there was a shortcut made for switching between tabs.

So, I am suggesting shortcuts to switch between tabs which are Ctrl+Left Arrow for switching to the tabs on the left and Ctrl+Right Arrow for switching to the tabs on the right.

You do know about Ctrl+Tab / Ctrl+Shift+Tab, don't you?

Yes, I did know about those shortcuts but I had used them years ago, maybe 3, 5 or 6. So, it went out of my brain and you helped me remember it back today. Thank you very much, I appreciate it :smile:
