    Hey, so I was just wondering if there was a way to change the short cut key combination for switching tabs on safari. I wanted to change it to something like cmd and arrow direction instead of using cmd + shift + [ or ] for directions.

    Just go to System Preferencs -> Mouse & Keyboard -> Keyboard Shortcuts. Click the little plus sign, then select Safari, and type in "Select Previous Tab," then Cmd + Left. Then do the same for "Select Next Tab." Keep in mind, using that particular shortcut will keep you from using Cmd + Left and Right to go to the beginning and ends of lines when in text boxes in Safari.

    tab switch shortcuts using F5 and F6 on MacBook

    Hello...similarly, on my MacBook I just tried to make an F5 shortcut in Safari for "Select Previous Tab" as well as an F6 shortcut for "Select Next Tab". Nothing happens when I press F5 or F6 now that I've set it up this way, though I followed the directions you stated. Any suggestions?

    Thanks!!

    Command+Shift+Arrow

    Command+Shift+Left or Right works in Safari 3 and the final release of Safari 4. Just be sure you click out of a text box and on to a blank part of the web page before initiating the command.
