Keyboard Shortcuts to Reorder Tabs
What's New? No permissions now required for this extension to work. About Chrome on Linux lets you re-order your tabs using the keyboard shortcuts ctrl-shift-pgup and ctrl-shift-pgdn. If you use Windows or Mac these shortcuts are not available to you. This tiny, unobtrusive extension fixes that. Shortcuts Move active tab left - ctrl-shift-pgup Move active tab right - ctrl-shift-pgdn Move active tab to first position - ctrl-shift-1 Move active tab to last position - ctrl-shift-9 Move active tab to nth position - ctrl-shift-<2..8> Changelog v1.7 Thanks Yonathon Randolph! - Listen on keydown instead of keyup - Update to manifest verison 2 - Prevent events from reaching webpage - Minor code cleanup F.A.Q. Q: It's not working on this page! A: Please note that NO Chrome extensions with a content script (such as this) are allowed to run in the Google Chrome Webstore (i.e. this page!) Q: It's not working on other pages! A: Tabs you had open prior to installing this extensions need to be reloaded before this will work. Q: I use a MacBook Pro. The extension doesn't seem to work! A: Fn-up/down arrow is equivalent to pgup/down. This means that using ctrl-shift-fn-up/down arrow is what you need! Q: I sync my extensions across different Operating Systems. Will this break things on Linux? A: No. The extension does nothing on Linux to avoid ctrl-shift-pgup/down moving the tab twice. Q: What did you test this on? A: Chrome 11/12 on Mac / Windows 7 / Windows XP / Ubuntu Lucid Lynx Q: Still having problems? A: Let me know and I will fix it. Don't make me ask for obvious details though. I would need browser version and operating system. Did you try it with no other extensions installed?
