Overview

Use a keyboard shortcut to switch between two most recent tabs.

By default, the hotkey is Alt+Q (⌥Q on Mac) but can be configured by accessing the following URL: chrome://extensions/shortcuts Please, take note that it's not possible to use existing Chrome hotkeys on this page. If you still want to set e.g. Ctrl+Tab as a hotkey, you have to change the Chrome settings file. On Windows: Press Win+R and execute "notepad %LOCALAPPDATA%\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\Preferences". On Ubuntu: gedit ~/.config/google-chrome/Default/Preferences Then change all occurrences of Alt+Q to Ctrl+Tab Important: if you're using Google account sync, disable settings synchronization. Otherwise, Chrome will be overriding the changed hotkey on each restart. If the above way doesn't work for you, follow the instructions on this Gist: https://gist.github.com/ilyachase/49c7a6d1aa543d16568520560cfaf226

Good job, but chrome recently released the tab group. The current tab switching does not support tab switching within a group.

Hi Dylan, thanks for reaching out. Tabs switching with tabs under groups should work, except for "saved groups". This is due to a bug in Chrome source code, which is currently being fixed and will be included in upcoming Chrome versions: https://issues.chromium.org/issues/40288048
