  • (2022-04-12) Sylvain NEVEU: Vraiment très utile et parfaitement fonctionnel. Il est possible de changer le raccourci en allant sur chrome://extensions/shortcuts (impossible de changer dans les options de l'extension directement)
  • (2022-03-04) Jeff Wu: just works
  • (2022-02-22) Robert Yang: No permissions needed. Not saying that other extension developers are malicious actors, but if you're working on proprietary info through your Chrome browser, then this gives you that peace of mind. Note to developer: if you intend to make feature enhancements, please maintain your no-permissions-needed feature. Thank you! There are other shortcut extensions that also do not require permissions to use. - Tab Pinner (Keyboard Shortcuts) - Duplicate Tab Shortcut Unfortunately, if you want one that does multiple functions without permissions needed, that seems a little harder to find. I'd assume if you're making an extension to customize multiple functions, then you'd just go the whole nine yards and allow control over as many things as you can, which would enter into permissions territory.
  • (2022-01-29) Ivan Risk: Спасибо за расширение! Странно, что такой фичи нет в самом браузере.
  • (2021-12-24) Kenan Yusuf Temel: It could include a few basic things for example 'previous 10 tab activity'. Anyway it works, thank you!
  • (2021-12-24) Folk Song: 내가 찾던 앱입니다. 감사합니다.
  • (2021-12-14) Tahir Gunduz: happier than ever
  • (2021-12-13) Md Shahriar Hossain Sajib: It works perfectly without any problem. I even tested closing previous tabs and found out that it maintains the stack of previous tabs perfectly. It works on both my MacOS and Linux unlike another extension that doesn't work properly in my Linux. Feature request: Since it maintains a stack, digging deep into previous tabs and keep on going backwards would be nice to have. You can have two separate shortcuts to move back and forth in the stack.
  • (2021-11-22) Tiago França Fernandes: great
  • (2021-11-13) Brennende Herz: It's a shame that Chrome and Chromium don't allow this by default. This extension is very helpful though it provides new shortcut for LRU tab.

  • (2021-09-25) Константин Ежов: Просто и без гирь наворотов - то, что надо. Клавиши "Ctrl" и "Q" рядом. Не разводит на разрешение включения шпионских функций.
  • (2021-09-17) Hassan Khademi: it works! thank:)

  • (2021-09-05) Mike Krier: But why can't I change the keyboard mapping? Alt-Q seems to be the obvious mapping.
  • (2021-08-13) Jackie Li: Was using Recent Tabs, then it stopped working. This just works
  • (2021-07-17) Andrii Mur: Perfectly minimalistic, has no clutter. does it's job Well ^_^

  • (2020-09-10) Luis Trigo Prunera: Funciona perfectamente. Pero: la única manera de recordar la tecla de acceso rápido (^Q) o de cómo cambiarla es visitar esta página de la chrome web store; yo esperaría al menos un tooltip en la propia extensión, o poder acceder a su configuración aunque solo fuera informativa.
  • (2020-04-08) S Samarawickrama: Works well on Win 10 Pro for me. Many thanks!
  • (2020-04-01) Miguel Angel: Simple and effective
