  • (2021-09-13) 姜戈于: 现在突然usage1设置也无法使用了,望大佬能告知解决办法
  • (2021-09-09) Benjamin Smith: This extension does not work well. I am using chrome 93. The hotkey to switch among recent tabs often just doesn't work (the tab list doesn't come up and it doesn't switch to a different tab). And when it does work, half the time it doesn't correctly switch the the most recent tab - I press the hotkey once and it skips over many recent tabs.
  • (2021-08-22) אליאב לוסקי: works great
  • (2021-07-25) Jason Burns: Loving it as im FINALLY able to switch back and forth easily between my current tab and my last tab. I use Ctrl + Shift + L(Last). And using in the 'Dev' mode. No issues so far. Thank you very much. If there is a donation page, i'll be making one as it saves me time.
  • (2021-07-21) Sudhakar Chintapalli: Extremely useful and increases productivity. Thank you @jasonsavard 😊🙏🏽
  • (2021-06-02) Yizhao Lang: Is this extension hacked? Since April 2021 it suddenly require ton more permissions without a change log. Very suspicious to me...
  • (2021-05-30) Hristo Kolev: Worked awesome for years. now it's unusable
  • (2021-05-25) William L'Archevêque: CTRL+Q should be working similarly as CTRL+P in Visual Code where it goes to the most recent tab loaded. When I press CTRL+Q it seems ot be randomly choosing a tab...
  • (2021-05-18) Saurabh Chauhan: Doesn't work when new tabs are opened using Ctrl+T : ( Otherwise it's perfect
  • (2021-05-16) Michal Poremba: Why after update it needs extensive permission "read and change all your data on websites you visit" ?
  • (2021-05-04) Will Ashley: You broke the extension. It has some severely wonky behavior recently. I only use it for the "developer" setting, AKA going back and forth between the last two recent tabs. I literally cannot predict where it's going to go most of the time I activate it. Sometimes I will have literally just two tabs open, and click on one, then on the other, then activate the extension thinking it should take me back, and it just does nothing. Add one more tab and it gets utterly unusable. The extension can't seem to keep track of the last visited tab, and does it count using the extension as "visiting" a tab? God this is such a trainwreck. Pull this extension until you fix it.
  • (2021-04-20) Markus Meyer: fine ... need to check most recent permission changes!!
  • (2021-04-20) Mahmoud Shahoud: It was great. Yesterday I got an update and more permissions requests. That permission isn't necessary and explores more personal data. I replaced it with another trusted one 'QuicKey – The quick tab switcher' & it's open source. It has more features also. 3 stars for the service I got till yesterday.
  • (2021-04-19) Steffen Leistad: Been using this for a long while, as a developer this is a godsend. But it got updated automatically when I opened Chrome just now, and now it doesn't work? Will up the stars to 5 again when it works again.
  • (2021-04-19) Bruce Wong: It keeps getting better. An example is the options documentation. Also, the developer responded quickly to help me understand a chrome quirk that seemed alarming to me when it was actually harmless.
  • (2021-04-19) J. Jektvik: It's worked well so far. I'm curious why did the Site access permission request appear after the latest update?
  • (2021-04-18) David Kind: I love this extension, HOWEVER, the permissions it asks for are not reasonable. You're gambling big time if you install this.
  • (2021-04-08) Tim Chen: 4.5 it is very good, but sometimes it is disabled by itself. I leave the browser open all night. Needs to turn the extension on and off to fix that. (Does not want to restart Chrome as to keep all the tabs). It is better to have a button to reset, kinda, if not easy to fix.
  • (2021-04-05) Alexey Yegupоv: works ok before but now is very unstable (stopped switching recent grouped and suspended tabs)
  • (2021-02-20) Ellis Garvin: Didn't work.
  • (2021-01-18) Aaron Mclean: Works great! I use alt-q to switch chrome tabs. Try reloading Chrome or rebooting before using.
  • (2020-11-17) Byron: Awesome! The fact that Chrome has been lacking this functionality for so long has made me so mad. Thank you for adding it! Once thing to note - the Keyboard Shortcut options has moved from where the extension's description says it is. It is now in a hamburger menu at the top-left of the Extensions area.
  • (2020-11-13) Rikza Mudhofar: not working in chrome 86
  • (2020-09-08) Михаил Сорокин: Отличное приложение. Очень удобно пользоваться, чтобы другие функции не мешали браузеру. Я поставил комбинацию клавиш "Ctrl + Q". Удобно и просто переключаться между вкладками. Программисту огромное спасибо!)
  • (2020-08-11) AnarchoTak: works well... with tinkering
  • (2020-04-15) Служба поддержки: У меня не заработало. Назначал разные комбинации клавиш, обновлял браузер, перегружался - никак не реагирует.
  • (2020-03-31) Nikhil Rastogi: So I was interested in the Ctrl + tab but couldn't assign it in this BUT I found Alt + Q which is right next to tab intuitive enough. THANKS! However @dev, why isn't there an automatic key combo assigned to this by default? This ought to be doen from ur side. Those who want to change it can do so later themselves. And... Your explanation on how to assign a key isn't clear when the extension is installed, I just couldn't understand it when I tried it. It is much clearer on this page of yours https://jasonsavard.com/wiki/Create_keyboard_shortcuts_for_Chrome_extensions
  • (2020-02-04) Alfredo E. Bertorelli H.: How can you make usage #2 (tab list popup) work? I have followed all instructions and I have even set up the shortcut in the keyboard shortcut menu for the extension. Everything is in place just as instructed but there's no way to make it work :s
  • (2020-01-22) Artem Kuleshov: Kind of frustrate, but finally it works. It's certainly unclear that you'll need - "FOR WHOM CAN NOT USE THIS EXTENSION: You MUST assign shortcut for it to dual switch between 2 recent tabs. Go to Menu> More tools> Extensions... Click left-top 3 dashes> Keyboard shortcut --> Find extension and assign shortcut (Ctrl+Q)" As one user (god bless him) mention. The rest is just fine, cheers!
  • (2019-12-30) Alex Yon: Tried multiple times to make it work on multiple Win 10 computers, reloaded all tabs and unstalled it and reinstalled it and assigned various keys...does not
  • (2019-12-14) mini_star chen: 按照使用说明的设置没有效果,具体操作:进入chrome-更多工具-扩展程序页面后点击最左边的菜单栏,设置快捷键。
  • (2019-11-10) Gilad Barner: The extension was nice and worked and all, but after something like a whole year (!) of suffering from HARD LAGGING PROBLEMS IN GOOGLE DOCS (!), which was only solved by going incognito, I finally found that this extension was the culprit! Typing and moving the cursor would lag and take time to complete in all docs. Using version 3.0.2.2. Removed it now... I have no idea why this extension caused the problems in Google Docs. Sorry, but this was really really really driving me crazy. Maybe if you fix it it would be cool...
  • (2019-10-20) Hornet Hornet: Not working on 71
  • (2019-10-17) Seungwoo Choi: Nice, just gotta go in the settings and set up the hotkey.
  • (2019-10-02) Igor Po: Super useful! Thank you!
  • (2019-08-31) Pete Langford: Brilliant! Just what I was after. A simple method of switching between recently viewed tabs. And using Ctrl Q works well given the Q key is right next to the Tab key and Ctrl Tab moves from one tab to the next. But as mentioned in other views, remember that you have to manually set your keyboard shortcut, it doesn't come set up with the extension: Go to Menu> More tools> Extensions... Click left-top 3 dashes> Keyboard shortcut --> Find extension and assign shortcut (Ctrl+Q)
  • (2019-08-21) N R: It's great but I think I've found a bug: If you open a tab (I use middle click) that you don't automatically switch to, then manually switch to some other one, then activate this extension to switch to your MRU tab, it will think the one you opened but didn't look at, is your most recent one. I think “most recent” should be the one you most recently *looked at*.
  • (2019-08-11) Thiago A.: Does not work (MacOS Mojave, Chrome 76)
  • (2019-08-09) system-data system-data: simply DOES NOT WORK!
  • (2019-08-08) Jawad Arshad: For those who cannot find the keyboard shortcuts thing in extensions page, you have to click on the hamburger menu on the top left after navigating to settings (3 vertical dots top right) -> More Tools -> Extensions
  • (2019-07-21) MAXIM FACTOUROVICH: Not working as advertised.
  • (2019-07-16) Renato Moraes: It doesn't work! Não funciona!
  • (2019-07-15) Tomasz CEDRO: I could set shortcut to Alt+Tab but that did not change anything on macOS Chrome 75.0.3770.100 :-(
  • (2019-06-20) Simply doesn't work. Waste of time.
  • (2019-06-13) Ulf Aslak: Thanks for this Jason! I was using another similar extension, but I discovered that they were logging my browsing history. Thanks for making this extremely useful little tool (as well as your other tools) and only asking for donations. Very honorable of you.
  • (2019-06-01) Jaime Gonzalez: Great extension! As a programmer, I often need several tabs open in one browser session. But some tasks only require me to toggle between two tabs. Now I can easily switch! I recommend Ctrl + Q. I don't understand why Google just won't get on board. My thanks to Mr. Savard!
  • (2019-05-29) Florian George: I'm sorry, but it doesn't work for me and specifying the shortcuts or other important details in the Options page itself would be more helpful.
  • (2019-05-28) Guille Netsuite: simply not working for me. No matter the restarting or reloading the tabs, setting different shortcuts, whatever... just didnt work.
  • (2019-03-23) Quan Nguyen Minh: FOR WHOM CAN NOT USE THIS EXTENSION: You MUST assign shortcut for it to dual switch between 2 recent tabs. Go to Menu> More tools> Extensions... Click left-top 3 dashes> Keyboard shortcut --> Find extension and assign shortcut (Ctrl+Q)
  • (2019-02-23) Samet baskıcı: does not work for me.

  • (2013-10-09, v:2.22) Steve Mould: Stopped working
    Hi there. I love the extension! It just recently stopped working. The error message I get in the console is: Denying load of chrome-extension://ocllfmhjhfmogablefmibmjcodggknml/js/jquery.min.map. Resources must be listed in the web_accessible_resources manifest key in order to be loaded by pages outside the extension It might be related to updating chrome. Many thanks Steve

    Error message is: Denying load of chrome-extension://ocllfmhjhfmogablefmibmjcodggknml/js/jquery.min.map. Resources must be listed in the web_accessible_resources manifest key in order to be loaded by pages outside the extension. I tried to reinstall extension but it did not help.
  • (2013-07-18, v:2.21) Matt Defenthaler: Leaking into Hotmail emails
    I think the extension might be leaking into hotmail emails. I haven't been able to reproduce it yet, but I noticed my tab history was injected into an email I sent out through hotmail.
  • (2013-04-19, v:2.19) Or Schiro: Scrolling and typing lags
    When using Recent Tabs with Chromium 26 on Linux I experience massive lags when scrolling a page or typing (especially in Gmail). It is so annoying that I had to disable Recent Tabs. Is there any bugfix you can propose? Regards Robert
  • (2013-04-07, v:2.19) Román Mateo: not working
    not working in w7, chrome v.26

    Suddenly stopped working. Bummer. I really liked this.

  • (2012-12-11, v:2.18.1) John Goodwin: Is this extension dead?
    Like other posters, suddenly stopped working for me. Tried setting my shortcut again, but still nothing.
