  • The order in which Ctrl+Tab shifts between tabs is ridiculous and not logical. It should be straight forward like in Chrome, Firefox and Safari. E.g. when having opened a link in a tab in the background, and then after a while wanting to shift to it using Ctrl+Tab, it often shifts to an older tab which I haven't used for days.

  • Hi @eriksmoe, tab cycling follows the most recently activated tabs by default, so if you've opened a tab in the background and never activated it, it'll be at the end of the list.

    If you want to change this, go to Preferences -> Browser -> User Interface and untick "Cycle tabs in most recently used order". Then the order will be the same as in Chrome.
