Tip #276

While cycling tabs with shortcuts, see a preview of tabs before switching to them by enabling the Tab Cycler.

You can cycle through open tabs with Keyboard Shortcuts Ctrl/⌘ + Tab and Ctrl/⌘ + Shift + Tab or by scrolling with the mouse wheel while holding down the right mouse button (see how in Tip #53). By default, as soon as you use the shortcut it will switch to the next tab, but you can also get a preview with the Tab Cycler before making the switch.

To enable the Tab Cycler:

  1. Go to Settings > Tabs > Tab Features > Tab Cycling.
  2. Enable Show Tab Cycler.

When the Tab Cycler has been enabled, you can also decide whether to display multiple tab previews at once or see the open tabs as a list and the preview of only the highlighted tab.
