  • I think Chrome’s shortcuts are better than Firefox’s one. I am gonna test them on linux also to see if they work (sometimes shortcuts on Linux versions of Chrome/FF are different.

    Thanks for sharing 🙂

  • They work on Linux version of Firefox. But they don’t work on Chrome since alt+1-9 is the shortcut to change tabs (ctrl+1-9 on windows).

    Tested on Ubuntu
