Rearrange Tabs

Rearrange Tabs is a tiny Google Chrome Extension that allows users to rearrange the position of the tabs in a window by moving them around using keyboard shortcuts.

  • To move a tab to its left

    • Mac: Ctrl-Shift-Left
    • Windows: Shift-Alt-Left
  • To move a tab to its right

    • Mac: Ctrl-Shift-Right
    • Windows: Shift-Alt-Right

It's as simple as that. Here's how it looks like: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A1X3geKtF8A
