TabWalk lets you navigate tabs in activity order with your keyboard, by pressing either:

  1. Alt+Shift+Left arrow ◀ back to previous tab recorded as active;
  2. Alt+Shift+Right arrow ▶ "forward", i.e. reversing recent TabWalk navigation steps or selecting a newly opened but not focused tab, if any.
User reviews

Very handy. Though the description doesn't tell you, the shortcuts may be edited on your Add-Ons page. I changed mine to Ctrl-Alt-Arrow, as it is slightly easier to reach than Shift-Alt-Arrow; and nicely matches Alt-Arrow which move back/forward in the tab's history.
