  • (2021-05-21) Sharan M R: I'm using this extention for a year now, and i really like it, easy to use, and works just fine, Thank you Mohnish
  • (2021-05-19) Zachary Mares: Unable to edit my previous review, but I left 4 stars because it does everything I want it to do with the exception of buggy behavior where opt+shift+left/right would move tabs in spite of that function being mapped to ctrl+shift+left/right. A scenario where this might happen is when editing a URL and wanting to highlight whole words using opt+shift. Developer addresses this bug in other review comments. Setting the mappings from "In Chrome" to "Global" caused the buggy behavior to stop. Now I can use ctrl+shift+left/right to move tabs and opt+shift+left/right to edit the URL without clashing behavior. Because it does exactly what I want, 5 stars.
  • (2021-05-05) Lukáš Zapletal: Simple, works fine. I wish this also had a feature to move to the rightmost postition and actually to open tabs at the rightmost position.
  • (2021-04-06) Roman Roman: Works good, doesn't need any permissions
  • (2021-03-23) Murch Ewings: So simple and beautiful. Nice.
  • (2021-03-20) Václav Kubernát: On Linux, you can use Ctrl+Shift+PageUp/PageDn to move tabs, but this isn't present in the Windows version. This extension remedies this issue.
  • (2021-03-19) Derrick Hwechul Cho: As Ali Abbas' mentioned, option+shift+left/right in text selection situation, the extension shouldn't be activated. (Using a default setting; control+shift+left/right)
  • (2021-02-26) Ali Abbas: This should be built in to Chromium. Great feature to quickly rearrange tabs around with the keyboard. Only one issue: when you try to select text in the address bar using Shift+Option+Left/Right, it moves the tab instead of selecting the text. The shortcut for this extension is Shift+Control+Left/Right. The Shift+Option+Left/Right shortcut needs to be removed so we can properly select words in the address bar. Please fix!
  • (2021-02-22) XVXIIIXIIXVIII: It works fine, but I would like for it to be able to function alongside tab groups. Currently, moving a tab will open collapsed tab groups, and moving a tab will skip over locations when entering or exiting a group. 5 stars if it is changed to work cleanly with tab groups.
  • (2021-02-10) Muhammad Usman: Just works as expected! Thanks :D
  • (2021-02-08) David Lapointe Gilbert: I love it, but there's a bug on Mac OS that prevents using "alt" (option). If you set your keyboard shortcut to "ctrl + shift + left" for example, using "alt + left" also triggers for some reason. So it's impossible to use "alt" to select some text in the address bar word by word. In other words, somehow, "alt" triggers the extension as if it was a combo of "ctrl" + "shift". 👀
  • (2021-02-04) Thaki Chowdhury: Great extension and something I use several times a day!
  • (2021-02-02) Sören Mindermann: Moving tabs left/right doesn't work for me, only CTRL-SHIFT-UP/DOWN does anything
  • (2021-01-29) Srivathsan Mohan: Very Useful Extension
  • (2021-01-01) Kyle Youngblom: Works exactly as it should, huge QoL boost. I would love to see shortcuts for collapsing tab groups as well!
  • (2020-11-20) Jx DarkAngel: Excelente extension, muchas gracias. Para los que tienen el problema de Ctrl + Shift + FLECHA. Usen de preferencia el atajo predeterminado, porque ese atajo se usa en la mayoria de las aplicaciones para seleccionar palabra por palabra.
  • (2020-10-20) Aaron Bell: It works!
  • (2020-10-11) Triton Lord: Does exactly what it says it does. I find this extension exceptionally helpful for me since I regular use 150-400 tabs at once (RIP RAM), love it!
  • (2020-08-21) ZACHARY MARES: Love this extension! Just installed. I noticed a bug: I have (the default) ctrl shift arrows set for moving tabs left and right. This works great! Here's the rub: If I'm on a webpage and filling out a form field (for example, the very field I'm typing in now!) I can use option shift arrows to highlight whole words at a time. Makes for faster editing. However, if I'm focused on the URL (I'm a big fan of cmd L to edit URLs) and I similarly try to use option shift arrow to highlight part of the URL, the tab gets moved instead of the word being highlighted. This is despite ctrl shift arrow being set for that shortcut and not option shift arrow. This only happens when the URL bar is focused.
  • (2020-07-29) Artur Diniz Adam: Works as expected, no special permissions nor site access needed. Really great!
  • (2020-07-29) David Lau: Great extension, works as advertised.
  • (2020-07-28) Mosh Feuchtwanger: Thank you! Exactly what I needed.
  • (2020-07-08) Tobias Zaugg: Perfect, exactly what I searched!
  • (2020-07-05) Takuya Matsuda: Rearrange Tabs で「タブを並べ替える」という意味になるらしいです。キーボードのtabキーをどうにかする拡張かといつも勘違いしちゃいますが、機能としては気に入っております!
  • (2020-03-22) Roland: Beautiful simple and useful open source extension with a trustworthy permission set and an honest + active developer!
  • (2020-03-19) Zach Hacking: For those times when reaching 6 inches to use your mouse is just too much. Works perfectly.
  • (2020-02-22) 山田太郎: Perfect
  • (2020-02-21) Connor McDonald: Absolutely awesome. What a useful tool! Thank you!
  • (2020-02-19) Bellson 0D: Tiny and useful!

  • (2019-08-25) 김성욱: It's that I want for mac and window
  • (2019-07-27) You Wang: Thank you!
  • (2019-07-23) TuanAnh Le: This is great ... when it works. For some reason, it stop working to day, and I have no idea how to fix this. Has anyone encountered this problem?
  • (2019-07-15) மனோஜ்குமார் பழனிச்சாமி: To move selected tab(s) to the front (leftmost position) Mac: Ctrl+Shift+Down Windows: Shift+Alt+Down To move selected tab(s) to the end (rightmost position) Mac: Ctrl+Shift+Up Windows: Shift+Alt+Up Swap this
  • (2019-06-17) aburex heinz: Great simple extension. Works perfectly.
  • (2019-06-16) Karan Khirsariya: Does what is expected of this. Also if there is any additional functionality like "pin tab" would have been also helpful.
  • (2019-06-03) Stefane Guevremont: This extension is really good
  • (2019-05-17) Matthew: Works exactly as advertised, reliable and simple. Adds a useful feature that should be built in!
  • (2019-04-10) Chris LaFave: I love it! I'm so used to Linux (for which the tabs-moving hotkeys are built into Chrome) but I use Windows when I have to. You make the transition easier with your wonderful extension!
  • (2019-04-03) sonsi s: This is a beautiful thing. Thank you, thank you, thank you! I generally have lots of tabs open at once, and when I try to drag one from the end to the front, it invariably drifts off and then ends up as its own window or stuck in a different one. I was hoping there was a keyboard shortcut, couldn't find one, so I looked for an extension and yours is wonderful. On a Mac I prefer using cmd-shift-[arrow] so since those weren't assigned to anything else I just changed the shortcuts. Excellent!

  • (2021-07-05, v:2.1.7) James Johnson: Moving a tab problem
    I have windows. On the Shift+Alt+Left, the is no left key what do you mean?
  • (2021-03-12, v:2.1.7) Josiah D: MacOS Option+shift+left/right shortcut conflict
    Hi, Like many others, I have an issue that regardless what the keyboard the shortcuts are set to, if you highlight the URL, the keyboard shortcuts of "option+shift+left" and "option+shift+right" move tabs. This is a problem because it conflicts with highlighting tabs word-by-word when focused in the URL bar. I see in previous answers the copy+pasted solution is to just change the keyboard shortcuts in the extension shortcuts page, but this doesn't fix it. Just to reiterate, no matter what we set those shortcuts to, it will also still conflict with selecting text word-by-word when you highlight into the URL bar.
  • (2021-03-09, v:2.1.7) Bryce Chee: Unable to use this extension on multiple user instances
    If you have 2 users of Rearrange tabs in Chrome (eg. one work and one personal account), it would only work for one of them. You either have to live with it being useful on one user, or not use it at all. Hope this helps someone out there!
  • (2020-10-08, v:2.1.7) Vrijen Attawar: Highlight word conflict
    Hi, I'm having the conflict between back highlighting a word and the rearrange ta shortcut. Could you advise how I should fix this? I'm on the latest version of chrome. Thanks so much. Your app is great!
  • (2020-08-13, v:2.1.7) Eduard Milushi: macOS Catalina 2019
    I switch my pc to a MacBook Pro 16inch 2019 and the extension is not working anymore with the shortkey that was working before with the MacBook pro 15inch 2017. Chrome version: 84.0.4147.125 (Official Build) (64-bit)
  • (2020-08-11, v:2.1.7) Mr Juanfeld: Extension not Working
    Hi, I have this extension working on a different computer with a different Chrome installation (Dev) and a different Google account. I'm using a brand new computer, new Windows installation and a new Chrome installation and on this setup the extension isn't working for me on this current setup. I'd appreciate help in getting it to work.
  • (2020-06-23, v:2.1.7) Shi Sherebrin: PgUp/PgDn not working when defining shortcut
    Hi, I'm able to define keyboard shortcuts with other keys, but for some reason not with Ctrl+Shift+PgUp/PgDn. Using Windows10. Tried restarting Chrome.
  • (2019-10-01, v:2.1.6) Martin: hijacked shortcut
    the shortcuts work but also steal the system's option+shift+left and option+shift+right to move tabs around. there is no way to adjust this in the preferences. :(
  • (2019-09-02, v:2.1.6) Nacho Cougil: It's great ... but it doesn't work with different profiles
    Hi! I'm using your great extension, but now and because I'm used to work with 2 different profiles, it seems the extension does not recognise them and it only works in the 1st profile. If you install the same extension with both profiles, the same shortcut only works in the 1st profile even you can be in the 2nd. I'd like to know if it's possible to solve that issue, because it will be great to have the same extension working with different profiles and control in the same way no matter I'm using one profile or another ;-) Best,
  • (2019-08-01, v:2.1.6) Ivan Bragin: Option + Shift + Arrow bug still exist on chrome for more than a year
    This bug is so annoying, I cant bare it. If this issue will stay with this extension then I have to delete it from my browser =(

    I'm using windows 10 75.0.3770.100 (Official Build) (64-bit) (cohort: Stable) Shift + Alt + left / right works great However Shift + Alt + up / down doesn't seem to work. Is this a known issue?
  • (2019-06-03, v:2.1.6) Stefane Guevremont: Select Multiple Tabs with the Keyboard
    To make this extension even better, it would be amazing to be able to select multiple tabs with the keyboard. E.g. Ctrl + Tab => Jump to the next open tab. There could be a function with Ctrl + ALT + Tab => Jump to the next open tab while keeping the last tab selected. That would allow the user to then press Ctrl + W to close the selected tabs, or to move them to the beginning or end.
  • (2019-05-02, v:2.1.6) Justin Louie: Allow User Defined Hotkey
    Hi Mohnish, This is a great plugin, but as with many others listed, there are lots of problems with highlighting text vs moving tabs around now. Can you just allow us to record any hotkey we want? Thanks, Justin
  • (2018-11-01, v:2.1.6) Christopher Lovejoy: Do not use option + shift + {left,right} arrow on Mac
    Please keep this shortcut listening only for control + shift + {left,right} arrow. On Mac, it is also listening for option + shift + {left,right} arrow, and when I'm attempting to adjust my selection word by word in the address bar, my tabs are being rearranged. Until this is addressed, I must disable this extension.

    On Chrome version 69.0.3497.100 (Official Build) (64-bit), when the url/search bar is focussed, the combination Shift-Option-Arrows moves tabs around. If the bar is not in focus, only Shift-Ctrl-Arrows works, which is what is expected.

    I changed my tabs to what I want and it went back to the tabs that were saved a few days ago. How do I update it so it saves the tabs I want or doesn't bring up multiple tabs anymore?
  • (2018-08-19, v:2.1.2) Ian Vogel: hurts to be without it
    i see that there were some bugs with the last update. i didn't realize how crucial this extension was to me until it was broken. it's one of the simplest and best. thanks!
