The default shortcut is Ctrl + Alt + Left/Right but on Linux systems this is usually intercepted by the window manager for switching desktops.

I'm not sure about Windows these days (and no idea about Mac!) but is Ctrl + PgUp/PgDn not feasible (the usual shortcut for tab movement in browsers, spreadsheets, editors etc)?

With regards to Windows (8.1), it seems that this shortcut makes everything displayed on the monitor rotate by 90 degrees (counter/)clockwise.

On GTK+, the default is Alt+1, Alt+2, ..., Alt+0

We're following what browsers (Chrome, in particular) use for switching tabs on a per-platform basis.

So what's used on Linux?

Not sure about Chrome but Firefox uses Ctrl+PgUp/PgDn (as do many other applications).

Just checked - Chromium uses the same ctrl+pgup/pgdn so I guess Chrome does too.

The standard shortcut for switching between tabs I believe is Ctrl-Tab (next tab) and Ctrl-Shift-Tab (previous tab). This is standard across Chrome, Safari, Firefox, IE, Sublime Text.

Using Pg Up/Down is not intuitive for macbook keyboards (since they don't have a page up/down buttons)

For 3.0 beta 3, we'll use Ctrl+PageUp/Down on Linux (only) since that seems to be most common.
