Navigating large amounts of tabs

Posted

Hi there, I was wondering if it would be possible to add an option to change the function of {ctrl+1}, {ctrl+2} etc to make it instead of going to the first and second tab, it goes to the first, then 2/9th, then 3/9th tab etc. I am aware that {ctrl+9} goes to the last tab but being able to navigate through the middle section would be a nice feature to have that could be turned on in the options section. Thanks. :)

Note that you can set focus to the Tab bar using Shift+Tab a few times if you first set focus to the location bar (Ctrl+L). You can see a focus ring on the Tab label if this tab has focus. You can use the Left/Right and Home/End cursor keys to navigate on the Tab bar.

Question owner

Sorry for the delayed reply, but I have resorted to scrolling with my mouse on the tab bar area, as I did not know this was a feature but it is much better than double clicking on the little arrows at the sides of the tab bar. The feature you suggested to me with having the tab bar in focus doesn't really help me all that much, as it requires many key presses to get the tab bar in focus, and then unless I also hold ctrl when pressing the arrow keys it loads each tab which isn't what I wanted, because I could then just do ctrl+tab/ctrl+shift+tab to navigate simply right and left. But thanks anyway. :)

My view here is if you can't read the tabs themselves it might be time to make bookmarks of those sites so you can go back and forth between them. As I know one day you will loose the browser and then try to restore sessions and they will be gone and then no one can do much to help then.
