Change tabs at lightspeed – Ctrl + Tab

Press and hold “Ctrl” and press “Tab” to cycle through other browser tabs

 

Pro Tip

Ctrl+Shift+Tab will move backwards

 

Benefit

The Alt+Tab keyboard combination is great, but more and more we work inside of a single program – the web browser.  Whether you use Chrome, Firefox or Internet Explorer, if you’re working with a large of number of tabs and want to get around quickly, this is your dream.

This keyboard combination doesn’t go through your tabs in the same order that Alt+Tab does, instead it follows the order that they are listed in your browser.

 

Testing

Go ahead and open a new browser tab right now (without closing this one), then Ctrl+Tab to get back to this site.  Easy peasy right?
