If you work with a lot of tabs open in the browser and if you’re a keyboard person, then you might have had the desire to move and rearrange tabs at different positions using hotkeys. Unfortunately, Chrome (Windows & Mac) and Firefox do not have such a feature built-in, so here are two extensions that will add this functionality for you:
Keyboard Shortcuts to Reorder Tabs for Chrome
Keyboard Shortcuts to Reorder Tabs is a simple extension for Chrome that enables reordering of tabs by holding
Install it from the Chrome Web Store, and you’re good to go! It doesn’t have a configuration page or icon, so it works completely invisible just like if it’s a native feature.
List of available shortcuts:
Ctrl+ Shift+ Page Up: Move active tab left Ctrl+ Shift+ Page Down: Move active tab right Ctrl+ Shift+ 1: Move active tab to first position Ctrl+ Shift+ 9: Move active tab to last position Ctrl+ Shift+ 2…8: Move active tab to nth position
MoveTabs for Firefox
MoveTabs works similar to the Chrome extension, but it also allows you to set your own custom shortcuts.
Default MoveTabs Shortcuts:
Ctrl+ Shift+ Page Up: Move active tab left Ctrl+ Shift+ Page Down: Move active tab right Ctrl+ Shift+ Home: Move active tab to first position Ctrl+ Shift+ End: Move active tab to last position
Both these extensions will help you save a good amount of time in your computing hours.
