    Is there a way that I can kind of "tab-browse" through my tabs in Safari or Firefox? I'm too lazy to scroll up and select each tab. If there's a combination of keys I can press to go through the tabs, that would rock.

    Command (the apple/squiggly key) + Shift + ] will go to the next tab in Safari, Command + Shift + [ goes to the previous one... in Safari click the Window menu and third from top is the option with keyboard shortcut next to it

    In Safari, try Command+Shift + left or right arrow keys. I don't know of any for FireFox though. :)

    Load up the Tab Mix Plus extension for Firefox. It gives the option for Ctrl-Tab, which is exactly what I expect to work for this. Gives lots of other great features, too.

    Command-T

    All the shortcuts are listed next to their respective options in the menus.

    Ctrl-Tab to move right through tabs and Ctrl-Shift-Tab to move left does not require any extensions. Neither does Ctrl-Page-up / Ctrl-Page-dwn.

    to navigate through the tabs open in firefox..you can navigate through up to 9 tabs using command-1 command 2 command 3 and so on....so if you want tab six...you hit command 6 :D

    Look in the Window menu. "Select Next Tab" and "Select Previous Tab" have the keyboard shortcuts right next to them. :p Command { and Command } (that's Command Shift [ and Command Shift ], respectively). The arrow keys also work, but I find the bracket combination easier to press.

    some helpful tab shortcuts for firefox newbies:
    ctrl-tab - tabs through each tab (as said)
    command-w - closes tab (or window when no tabs are left)
    command-r - refresh
    command-t - new tab
