so quick, so easy, works like a dream lots of useful settings (like remembering the last search) and features (like displaying the total number of tabs open) - AND you can contact the developer for support Would pay/donate if you add a donate button in settings :)

NOTE: The CTRL+TAB functionality did NOT work when I installed the extension from the MIcrosoft Edge Add-Ons stor. I had to remove it and install the extension from the CHROME Add-Ons store to get it to work. So... three stars in EDGE, five stars in CHROME. (Then I had to re-add it from EDGE in order to add this note to my Review!) Pretty much all other browsers now have this functionality built-in, and it's now firmly in my muscle-memory. I think it's pretty pathetic that MS has had users asking for it for FOUR YEARS, and they keep ignoring us. Thank you for making this work-around so that when I do have to use Edge (no choice at work), I don't have to give up this EXTREMELY basic fucntionality!
