Google Chrome Keyboard Shortcuts for Tabs

So I hope by now everyone knows that Ctrl+T opens a new tab in Chrome, but I always forget these shortcuts so hope they help trigger your memory too…

  • Ctrl+T = Open a new tab
  • Ctrl+W = Close the current tab
  • Ctrl+1 through Ctrl+8 = Go to the tab at the specified position in the window
  • Ctrl+9 = Go to the last tab in the window
  • Ctrl+Tab = Go to the next tab in the window
  • Ctrl+Shirt+Tab = Go to the previous tab in the window

Note: Yes, these all appear to work in FireFox too. I’m just partial to Chrome.
