  1. 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 🙂

  2. 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

  3. It doesn’t work for me too.. I’m so sad with this, I’m glad to know about this shortcut but it doesn’t work, how does it goes actually? Is there any software to install first before it start?
