Is there any way to switch tabs using exactly one keystroke in Chrome? I've tried the Shortcut Manager extension, but it doesn't disable the shortcuts while in text fields, which makes it impossible (or, at least, impractical) to use a single keystroke to switch tabs.
I use Vimium in Chrome. It enables vim-like keyboard shortcuts. Default for switching tab is uppercase j/k (so you may count this as two key strokes, but I do think it should be possible to remap). As vim uses the concept of edit/visual/insert mode it should not interfere when you are in text fields.
