TabKeys for Mac enhances your Web-browsing experience by allowing you access to Safari features through hot keys. Not only is it easy to use, but it also comes with a powerful one-click menu and impressive features. If you use Safari a lot, this extension is definitely worth installing.
After installing TabKeys for Mac you can access the extension through the button that appears to the left of Safari's URL field. Click the button and you get access to a basic but very functional menu that lets you set hot keys for navigating tabs and moving between Web pages, change default settings for tab positions when they are opened, and even assign hot keys for individual Web pages without any apparent limitation. You can even select sites that are "blacklisted" from the hot key functions. All these options make this extension a worthy companion to Safari. During our tests, the hot keys entered responded quickly, and the tab presets also functioned as intended.
TabKeys for Mac works as expected and can improve your Web-browsing experience on a Mac. If you prefer to use keyboard commands to clicks for navigating the Web with Safari, you'll love the functionality of this extension. It's small, but it packs a lot. Happy browsing!
Tab Options (formerly Tabkeys) lets you assign custom keyboard shortcuts for common tab actions in Safari. Available actions are: open a new tab, close the current tab, reload the current tab, switch to the next or the previous tab, move the current tab to the left or to the right. For each action, you can assign up to three characters as shortcuts (including ones that you type in combination with the Shift or Option key). For example, you could assign lowercase "w", uppercase "W", and Option+C to Close Tab. Only character keys are supported, either alone or in combination with Command, Option, and/or Shift. Not supported are special keys such as Home, PageDown, NumLock, and the arrow keys. Tab Options has a setting that determines where new tabs go when you open them using your chosen hotkey. You can opt to have new tabs open to the right of the current tab, to the left, or at the end of the tab bar. (Note that this setting does not affect tabs that are opened using any of Safari's built-in methods.) Another Tab Options setting determines which tab becomes active when you close a tab using your chosen hotkey. You can opt to have the left tab or the right tab become active. (Note that this setting does not apply when you close a tab using any of Safari's built-in methods.)
What's new in this version:
Fixed a couple of old bugs: Ctrl-hotkeys now work when a form field is focused, and you can now use Ctrl-Tab as a hotkey.
