    I really want to stop using firefox cuz of all its memory and processor usage problems. But there is one feature that I'm reluctant to give up. In FireFox you can switch between tabs most efficiently, and I like to have alot of tabs open. Pressing Cmd - 1 brings you to the first tab (which I like to have my Gmail open in), Cmd - 2 takes you to the second and so on thru Cmd - 8. Cmd - 9 takes you to the last tab.

    Which brings me to my question:
    Is there anyway to edit in new keyboard shortcuts in Safari or Opera?

    p.s. The memory and processor problems are not trivial. I have a MacBook with a 2.4Ghz Core 2 Duo and IStat Pro tells me that it's using 100+% CPU and it does this for minutes at a time, it just beach balls, can't do anything...

    I checked the Safari KB shortcuts and it didn't show up in the list, but I use Control + tab to move through the tabs and Shift + Control + Tab to do it in reverse. That is actually not on the shortcut page for some reason, but it's there.

    I can't pick a tab though I've been trying different keystrokes. Oh, Wait I have MT Lion... just a sec...nope just the tab on that version too.

    Go to and tell them to add it.

    Wait here is a plugin that will add the feature:

    Tada! :D
