SafariFilter: Is there a way to toggle between tabbed windows in Safari under OSX 10.4 Tiger?

Hold down Command + Shift + right/left arrow key; this will take you to the next tab on the right or left of the current one.

Cmd-{ and Cmd-} seem to work just fine for flipping through tabs inside one window, and Cmd-` does its usual thing for flipping between windows.

Apparently, this also works with Command+shift+{ - or }.

Command + < -- or --> also moves back and forward in the history of the current tab, btw.

I only mention this because I just figured it out.

Command + Shift + right/left arrow key was the old, pre Safari 1.3/2.0 keyboard shortcut to switch between tabs. However, this conflicted with the long standing shortcuts for selecting text from the insertion point to the start/end of a line. So, the shortcut is now Command+shift+{ - or }.

Command + Shift + right/left arrow key will still work for tabs, unless you have the insertion point in a text entry field of some kind. Therefore, it's a good idea to train yourself on Command+shift+{ - or }.
