Ctrl-Tab to switch to most recent tabs option

The current behavior to switch between tabs only really makes sense if you have a couple of tabs open, say 6(?). If you like many other people have many tabs open, cycling through the tabs becomes useless. Let’s say you have 30 (I have many more) open tabs and you want to go back and forth to/from the last tab opened. Or cycle in the order of last active (Firefox option). That seems to be much more functionally helpful.

Can there be a setting added to allow for this? It’s quite a nice feature to have.

I saw this topic but wanted to add a more thorough reason why it would be a great feature.

+1 for this feature. I migrated from Firefox and this is a must have feature in my workflow.

@Sergio @hugbro,
While the specific shortcuts you mentioned aren’t available, that there are some keyboard shortcuts you can use to jump between tabs, regardless of number:

Jump to the next open tab Ctrl + Tab or Ctrl + PgDn
Jump to the previous open tab Ctrl + Shift + Tab or Ctrl + PgUp
Jump to a specific tab Ctrl + 1 through Ctrl + 8
Jump to the last tab Ctrl + 9
Jump to the first tab Ctrl + 1

It would be very good if a feature cycles through tabs in recently used order (ctrl+tab) will added. Ctrl+tab is user friendly and quick.

It is the only reason why Brave isn’t my default browser. :frowning:
