Popup Tab Switcher

Makes switching between tabs more convenient.

Image from store Popup Tab Switcher
Description from store The extension shows you a popup with last active tabs when you press its shortcut (Alt + Y by default). You cycle through them by holding Alt and pressing Y. By releasing the Alt key you switch to the chosen tab. This is like switching between apps in Windows (Alt + Tab) and in macOS (Cmd + Tab). Also, when you close an active tab, you will be placed to the previously active one. It is more helpful than the default Chrome's behaviour, which activates the nearest tab. You can delegate default switching between tabs by pressing Ctrl + Tab to the extension, see how https://github.com/dvdvdmt/popup-tab-switcher#replace-default-tab-switching-behaviour NOTE: The extension tries to render its popup on the page wherever it is possible, but there are cases where it can't do that: * Chrome's web store pages. The extension doesn't work here. * Special Chrome tabs such as Settings, New tab, History, etc. In this case the extension tries to switch a user from a special tab to a previous tab without showing a popup. * The page has no focus (a user searches on the page, focused on address bar, etc.). In this case the extension shows its popup and starts a timer by the end of which it will switch a user to the selected tab. * Files pages (URL starts with file:///). The extension can't work on such pages without a special permission which you can turn on in Extensions > Popup Tab Switcher (Details) > Allow access to file URLs.

  • (2023-09-29) Foot: This is awesome. Open previously active tab is so useful.
  • (2023-09-02) Vladimir Sedlar: All in all the extension is great. It does what it intends to do perfectly and greatly improves my experience using chrome. The only thing missing is the ability to remap the trigger key.
  • (2023-08-14) Jason Pollock: I've been looking for this functionality forever. The only thing keeping me from moving to Brave full time.
  • (2023-07-17) m m: Great extension but I have 1 issue / question , if the maximum number of tabs is 5 for example and I press alt+y , it goes down to the next option and then the next one again until it loops again after 5 clicks Can it go to the 6th tab if I click again? thanks in advance :)
  • (2023-05-19) jiri vesely: OMG it really works now! Brilliant!!! Chrome devs can't even implement cycling recent tabs by 2023... This addon is miracle! Who made this is genius!!! Chrome such anti user $@!# I don't understand how anyone can even do anything, there is still no really good addons for managing tabs and stuff like that, only barely starting to come up... Like if it was something niche, but this is really basic like you would expect browsers to have that... There are even studies about tab overload... browsers UI didn't change basically since 1999... Chrome devs IQ -100, this addon dev IQ 145!!! I don't know honestly what i would do without this addon, if you are researching tons of stuff, it is easily generate lots of tabs, ability to switch to recent tabs is invaluable. I would increase count to like 10, or custom amount chosen by user, but 6 is something i can definitely work with. Praise to you, glory to you! Really can't thank you enough for this! Hopefully it won't stop working at some point etc. Geez that is really terrifying thought!!! Don't recommend changing default hotkeys or messing with anything, all those addons were really buggy, i am just so glad it works :)
  • (2023-03-14) Alex Chen: Perfect for keyboard shortcut I set the keyboard shortcut to cmd + 1 on my mac, and now I can hold down cmd key and keep pressing 1 to switch to whatever tabs I want, cmd + tab style. This is perfect.
  • (2023-01-24) Peanut: chrome run on two desktops. A sorting bug occurs. This makes this extension unusable.
  • (2023-01-20) Steve Vranyes: looks great. nicely customizable. fast. used all the time.
  • (2023-01-13) Peter Hung: best out there (2023)
  • (2022-11-14) Tâm Huỳnh: okay
  • (2022-10-22) Daniel: It is useful and it will help me. However, it would have been much more useful if we were able to go cycle front and back in the list. The would be an extremely easy to implement. I just wonder why it wasn't already featured..
  • (2022-09-15) Javier Juarez: Muy buena extensión para cambiar de pestañas. Gracias.
  • (2022-08-31) Jess Gold: It's good, mostly. However, I try to change the settings, but they're always reverted back to default after I close the settings pop up. Not so great. Would appreciate it if you could fix this issue, the auto switch timeout feature is really annoying. Thanks
  • (2022-08-10) Alex Chen: Best tab switcher ever, I'm a power user and it has everything I need
  • (2022-06-29) Thongchai Sirichanphan: Good Job!!!
  • (2022-06-28) Jian: works as intended
  • (2022-06-25) Rodrigo: Amazing, it's such a shame Chrome team doesn't implement it.
  • (2022-06-10) Björn Backman: Awesome extension - using it non-stop!
  • (2022-04-29) Anonymous: If you open chrome on two desktop, closing chrome from one desktop, you will force switch to Chrome on another desktop. Please repair as soon as possible ...
  • (2022-04-28) Red Matte: Thanks Creator!
  • (2022-03-08) Akash Shrestha: great add feature to add custom shortcut key
  • (2022-02-26) Matt Verzola: Excellent extension. Thank you!
  • (2022-02-26) Daur Dazan: Chromium 98.0.4758.80 (official), (64 bit) - works fine.
  • (2022-01-23) Thiago Moreti: conflicts with next tab chrome shortcut alt + y :(
  • (2021-11-29) yasin inal: I set it to Ctrl+RightArrow and Ctrl+LeftArrow AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING!
  • (2021-06-27) Hoang-Phuc Tran: Will be better if there's a button to close tab
  • (2021-06-24) Akio Ozaraga: It works but I have a bug where when I am on edge://extensions, it won't let me use this extension to switch to another tab.
  • (2021-06-20) Vsevolod Zhoha: Only tabs which were opened in the TabSwitcher are able to fast switching. If I open a new tab in a browser I can't switch to it as to previous opened I don't know did this option work before but now doesn't
  • (2021-05-06) Anshu Raj: It works really well and I am happy using. If you are working it can increase your working speed and it is fully customizable and its default window shortcut is Alt + Y you can even change shortcut key.
  • (2021-04-19) Meet Saiya: really smooth and works very well
  • (2021-03-28) Azzam Play: you're
  • (2021-02-26) Kokodjo: Actually quite good. But what bothers me is that whenever you click on it, the options menu always opens and the rest is then displayed directly in the middle of the screen. And there is no German translation.
  • (2021-02-15) M K: The extension is really cool. But I noticed that when the list pop up we cannot select the tab using the mouse. Moving the mouse makes it go the tab highlighted in the list. Do you see what i mean ?
  • (2020-12-17) Sorawit Kongnurat: Very convenient
  • (2020-12-02) Artemi Lebedev: add plz option: "Switch to previously active tab in ACTIVE window" thx
  • (2020-11-26) Nam CT: Actually i wanna give a 4.5 rating, as pressing the shortcut will first open the last opened page rather than open the popup. Popup will show only after the first navigation.
  • (2020-11-25) Void Addons: This extension is awesome! ctrl+tab is so bad! I love the visual way to switch between tabs! Please add the alt+tab feature of pressing alt+delete to delete a tab. Love your work!
  • (2020-11-21) Rcdmine: im a youtuber and i dont like this these ppl are begging for reviews is the plug in
  • (2020-11-20) passive be: concise, beautiful and useful~ 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 five stars!

  • (2020-11-13) Ning Cao: Good
  • (2020-10-31) Akash: Its great !!!... Anyone who want to change the shortcut, visit chrome://extensions/shortcuts and change as your needs ! Dont blame the dev for that Alt+Y stuff. Works very fine without any lag.
  • (2020-10-22) Richard: I really like this extension, the only thing I would like adding to it is the ability to change the hotkey. Add that and it would be 6 stars
  • (2020-10-01) นิภาพร สายใจ: OK
  • (2020-09-19) BRASI Reed: cool
  • (2020-09-11) Stas: This functionality should be default to chrome!!!

  • (2023-07-19, v:2023.4) m m: it loops and doesn't go to the next tab (no more than the max number of tabs shown in the settings) )
    if the maximum number of tabs is 5 for example and I press alt+y , it goes down to the next option and then the next one again until it loops and goes back to tab1 again after 5 clicks Can it go to the 6th tab if I click again? thanks in advance :)

  • (2022-03-16, v:1.7.11) Aubrey Walker: Regarding switch to used open tab
    Thank you so much for this extension. question, is there any way to set for the last open used tab in chrome to open only within that set of windows? When I close a tab, it would be awesome if it could open the last used tab in the existing set tabs in the windows as opposed to switching to another windows where tab was used. Does that make sense? Thank you

    1. Когда открываешь новую вкладку без перехода на неё. 2. Когда открываешь вкладку в полном экране. Не получится перейти через расширение, пока не перейдёшь на неё вручную. Стандартным переходом всё работает. Особенно актуально для полного экрана — вкладки-то не видно.
