    Does anybody know of a Safari tab cycle key command that always works? I use command-shift-left or right arrow key. But that stops working as soon as you're on a page with a text entry field. Is there a cycle tabs key that works all the time no matter what?

    It still works, just not when a text field is active, so just tab yourself out of the text box and you can cycle on... :)

    In Safari 2 Apple changed the commands to shift+command+[ or shift+command+]

    Earlier versions use the arrow keys as you have stated.

    I came up with my own even better solution. I used the keyboard system pref to add a new shortcut to safari so that "command - shift - >" and "command - shift - <" cycle through my tabs, and it works regardless of if you're in a text field or not. Take THAT you poorly designed shortcut key commands! ;)
