If you're looking for a solution to make CTRL+TAB observe the MRU order, this is what you need. All the other extensions to achieve this will take you down the rabbit hole of custom key bindings, because Chrome does not allow you to re-assign CTRL+TAB. This works around that mess by re-ordering the tabs (instead of hi-jacking the key binding) and works beautifully. Thank-you Brandon!

My main goal was to remove all the permissions, make it simple, and only do what it says it does. Thank you for the review, have a great day.
