Use Mouse Wheel to Switch Tabs in a Millis

Multi-tabbing is nice. Then what? Have you ever given it a thought? "How can I do it faster?" Here is a trick that helps browse all tabs in no time by switching them with mouse wheel.

Step 1 Move cursor onto the circled area in one of dual panels. As you can see, you can move cursor onto a tab, tab bar, address bar, or any other spot in that area.

Instance 1: Cursor on a tab



Instance 2: Cursor on blank spot of tab bar



Instance 3: Cursor on address bar



Instance 4: Cursor on any other spot



Step 2 Scroll the mouse wheel up or down to switch to the left or right tab.

Instance 1: Switch to the right tab

Scroll down the the wheel button to switch focus from current tab to its right one. Keep scrolling down, it will keep moving right; after reaching the rightmost one in panel, it will move to leftmost one.




Note: you may use hotkey Ctrl+PageDown to do that.

Instance 2: Switch to the left tab

Scroll up the wheel button to switch focus from current tab to its left one. Keep scrolling up, it will keep moving left; after reaching the leftmost one in panel, it will move to the rightmost one.




Note: you may use hotkey Ctrl+PageUp to do that.
