The extension consists of four keyboard shortcuts:

  • Alt-Shift-L: Move Tab Right
  • Alt-Shift-H: Move Tab Left
  • Alt-Shift-K: Move Tab to Start Position
  • Alt-Shift-J: Move Tab to End Position


A separate extension, tabasco, adds the following shortcuts to Chrome

  • Close Other Tabs
  • Close Tabs to the Right
  • Pin Tab

Chrome extensions currently only allow for a maximum of four shortcuts, which is why they are not included in tabloid.
