i am a tabbed browser junkie, yea that's what you can call me. i totally love the hassel free and cluster free browsing that the browsers today provide, quite unlike the ealier one i used ie 6 a pain to have so many windows open at one and the navigation was just too patethic.
i do know that there was netscape but i hated for its junk looks also mozilla which i didn't use much earlier, but with firefox and later ie7 and flock i can't live with those tabbed browsers, they make my life so easier.
i thought to share some of the shortcuts which has made my life a bit easier with the tabbed browsing.
i have generalized the shortcuts into three categories firefox and flock only, ie7 only and all tabbed browsers.
here are those keyboard shortcuts for all tabbed browsers
open links in a new tab in the background ctrl+click
open links in a new tab in the foreground ctrl+shift+click
open a new tab in the foreground ctrl+t
switch between tabs ctrl+tab/ctrl+shift+tab
close all tabs alt+f4
close other tabs ctrl+alt+f4
firefox specific only
switch to a specific tab number ctrl+n (n can be 1-9) (over 9 it does not work in firefox and flock)
close current tab ctrl+w
ie 7 related
open a new tab from the address bar alt+enter
open a new tab from the toolbar search box alt+enter
open quick tabs (thumbnail view) ctrl+q
switch to a specific tab number ctrl+n (n can be 1-8)
switch to the last tab ctrl+9
open a link in a background tab middle mouse button on a link
open a new tab double click on empty tab row space
close a tab middle mouse button on the tab
so here is to enjoying a better browsing experience, i couldn't cover opera as i actually don't use it, but will try and use it soon.
