I would love to see Phoenix (and Browser) pick up the Chimera behavior of Next
Tab/Previous Tab.

Alt-Shift-Left and Alt-Shift-Right would be my choices for the toggling keyboard
shortcuts.

What exactly do you want incorporated? Is it menu entries in the Go menu for
Next and Previous Tab, or is it something else?

Haven't you heard of ctrl+Page Up/Page Down for toggling tabs? Please mark this 
as wontfix

Cuc Pham, keyboard shortcuts are not an excuse for hiding it in the UI.
Personally, I could live without these menu items (I would never use them), but
I will let a developer wontfix this one.

I marked it as NEW because it's a unique and reasonable RFE. That doesn't mean I
agree with the reporter.

actually, the reporter didn't know about Ctrl-Page Up/Page Down. in which case,
this is specifically only a request to have it in the Go menu. then Phoenix
newbies like me wouldn't post spam like this ... :p

ignore Alt request.

i understand completely if this gets WONTFIXed. usually, i check the app docs
and Bugzilla when using a Mozilla-based browser. i never saw this particular
feature mentioned, so i figured adding a menu item couldn't hurt.

I found this bug report while looking for reports about the lack of
documentation of ctrl-Tab and ctrl-shift-Tab for the Mozilla browser.
I found those keyboard shortcuts only by guessing.  In this bug report
I discovered ctrl-PageUp/PageDown.  All these swell, if secretive,
keyboard shortcuts!

It would be good if they were listed in the documentation, in the
section about Tabbed Browsing.

I second the notion of putting them on the Go (or other) menu.  This
is not because anyone wants to use a menu to select the next tab, but
it allows a user to hunt around the menus for the functionality, then
learn the keyboard shortcut that is listing on the menu.

I don't want to clutter up the Go menu with two more items.

VERIFYING obvious WONTFIX bugs.  Filter on firebirdWontFix to filter these bugs.
 I skipped a few that I'm unsure about from their summary and will manually go
through them.
