Cycle through last used Chrome tabs using keyboard shortcut.
What is Tab Cycler: Cycle Last Used Tabs?
Tab Cycler: Cycle Last Used Tabs is an Edge add-on that allows you to quickly switch between the most recently used Chrome tabs using a keyboard shortcut. It emulates the ALT+TAB behavior and remembers the order in which tabs were switched. With distinct keys for fast and slow changes, it provides an efficient tab switching experience across multiple Chrome windows.
Using a keyboard shortcut, cycle between the most recently used Chrome tabs. This extension tries to emulate the Windows ALT+TAB (or Mac Command+TAB) behavior to allow you to switch between open tabs in a Most Recently Used manner. It remembers the order in which you switched tabs (made a tab active) and keeps track of it so you can quickly return to the most recently used ones.
Note: The keyboard shortcut settings may be reset after updating the extension. As a result, you may want to re-enable the desired keyboard shortcuts on the Chrome Extensions page's keyboard shortcut settings.
Why are there two sets of shortcuts, one for fast switching and the other for slower switching? Isn't it feasible to simplify the behavior like ALT+TAB? A: The Chrome API has various limitations that make it difficult to implement this feature in the most natural way possible. The goal was to have this extension work as closely as possible to Windows' Alt+Tab (or Mac's Cmd+Tab). However, because of these constraints, this expansion must rely on time gaps between key pushes. That is why there is a difference between a rapid switch (a faster timer) and a regular switch (slower timer).
Where can I modify the tab switching shortcut key? A: To update your shortcut, go to your Chrome browser's Extensions tab and look for the Keyboard Shortcuts link at the bottom of the list of extensions. Your installed extensions and programs' keyboard shortcuts can be changed here. Note: If Chrome itself utilizes that shortcut, it's possible that it won't be allowed to be set.
