Firefox: Forgotten Feature

Technically, I knew about this. But I forgot it, and just rediscovered it again, by accident. You can switch from one tab to any other, directly, with the keyboard. If you have four tabs open, pressing CTRL-1 switches to the first (leftmost) tabl. Similarly CTRL-2 opens the second, and so forth. Don't forget it kids!

One of the advantages here is quick switching. You can hold down CTRL, then just tap two numbers, to switch back and forth rapidly. Great for comparing two pages or any kind of cross referencing that involves switching there and back again.

Neat trick! Usually I just go thru the whole list with ctrl+tab.

You may use Markdown syntax in the comment, but no HTML. Hints:

  • An empty line between text will create a paragraph boundary.
  • Use angle braces around a plain URL to auto-link it: <http://www.example.com/>.
  • Use this format to create a link with different text showing: [An Example](http://www.example.com/).
  • Use backticks (``), not leading spaces to enclose a code block.

If you are attempting to contact me, ask me a question, etc, please send me a message through the contact form rather than posting a comment here. Thank you. (If you post a comment anyway when it should be a message to me, I'll probably just delete your comment. I don't like clutter.)
