  • Hi there,
    I'm very happy that new Opera has landed on *nix platform. I'm still using old Presto based Opera for most of my tasks.
    Did you plan to make possible to edit shortcuts? Or at least make it compatible to Chormium/Firefox ones? The main this is to fast switch tabs. In chromium this is set to CTRL+PgUp/PgDn.


  • What's "fast switch"? The default on Windows has always been to switch tabs with Ctrl-Tab and Ctrl-Shift-Tab, though if "Advanced shortcuts" is enabled (and a text field is not focused) you can just use 1 and 2 ... both of those should work on Linux as well, unless your window manager uses Ctrl-Tab for something else.

  • There's 1 and 2 for previous/next tab (as it is in Opera 12 and earlier), you just need to enable advanced keyboard shortcuts (Settings > Browser). By the way, aside from this and Ctrl + Tab, there's Ctrl + ` (the key that is below Esc and above Tab on most keyboards).

  • In chromium this is set to CTRL+PgUp/PgDn.
    Hi @fasolens, you can rebind it as follows: 1. Close the Opera, go to the Opera's profile folder (you can find the path in O-Menu>About Opera>Paths>Profile), and open the "Preferences" file in your text editor, then edit the first 10 lines, as below:

       "Keybindings": {
          "Basic": {
             "CycleToNextTab": [ "Ctrl+Tab", "Ctrl+PageUp" ],
             "CycleToPreviousTab": [ "Ctrl+Shift+Tab", "Ctrl+PageDown" ]
          "Settings": {
             "AdvancedEnabled": true

    (the value for the "AdvancedEnable" can be "false", if you don't use advanced keybindings) 2. Save the changes, relaunch the Opera.
