More About Ctrl+Tab MRU

IMPORTANT TO KNOW: The shortcut 'Ctrl+Tab' must be manually set and only works on Windows, not on Linux or Mac OS. See below for more information. *** It seems that CHROME HAS DISABLED the possibility to use Ctrl+Tab as a shortcut :-( I'll be looking into this and if we get a workaround for this *** This extension is in beta state, please send feedback on your experiences and wishes! 'Ctrl+Tab MRU' allows switching through tabs in the order they were visited before. By default this happens by pressing Ctrl+Y for going back in time and Ctrl+Shift+Y for the other way round. Now it's reality!!! On the Windows platform you are allowed to change these shortcuts to Ctrl+Tab and Ctrl+Shift+Tab. Just go to the 'Extensions' page (chrome://extensions), choose 'Keyboard shortcuts' at the bottom and enter the new shortcuts. While this is also possible on Linux, unfortunately the setting will be ignored here. And on Mac OS you won't be able to enter Ctrl+Tab as a keyboard shortcut. Tab switching also works on special pages (like chrome://), Chrome Web Store URLs, PDFs, XMLs or when the address bar is focused. In this case a temporary tab is opened to show the menu. To directly jump to a tab listed on the switcher menu, click on its title or icon. Drawbacks: - At the moment I don't have an idea how to avoid the temporary tab. It's required because I otherwise could not detect the release of the ctrl key (=end of the switching action) on special pages. - If you release the ctrl key to fast while the temporary tab is loaded I am unable to detect the key-up event, therefore the menu gets stuck. Please hit the ctrl key again to finish switching. - Recent tab order is not preserved when closing and restoring a window. Permissions: - 'Access your data on all websites': required to draw the tab list on top of the websites' content and to detect PDFs and XMLs. - 'Access your tabs and browsing activity': required to record tab order, open the temporary tab and to switch to the selected tab. Updates: - 0.6 -- tab titles on the switcher popup are now clickable to directly jump to a tab -- no more need to reload the tabs after initial install -- added xml viewer support (menu is shown on temporary tab) - 0.5 -- added frameset support (menu is shown on temporary tab) - 0.4.2 -- added support for ftp and file:// pages -- added incognito support - 0.3.1 -- corrected tab order for tabs opened in the background -- refined stylesheet
