Opera now supports Firefox tab switching shortcuts

When did this happen? Accidentally I pressed Ctrl + 1 in Opera, and guess what? It switched to the first tab! Hmm, how about Ctrl + PgUp? Yup, that works, too. Maaan, it took helluva lot time, but finally we got there!

Just think about it. Traditionally, you had to use Ctrl + Shift + Tab to switch to the previous tab. I don’t know if it’s because I’m left-handed, but I normally press Ctrl, Alt or Shift with my left hand. Is there anyone who does Alt + Tab with their right hand? I guess not, you don’t even have a right Alt, only AltGr. So to switch to the previous tab, you had to press THREE keys with your left hand. With the addition of Ctrl + PgUp, that’s only ONE key for each hand. So much more convenient.

This was one of the very last annoyances I had with Opera since switching from Firefox, but now it finally has this, too.

Kudos, guys!
