According to the Google keyboard shortcuts documentation,
Alt+Left arrow navigates back, and
Alt+Right arrow navigates forward. However, it only behaves that way if the
Alt key and
Left arrow key are pressed simultaneously. If
Alt is held down and then the
Left arrow is pressed, it instead switches tabs to the previous tab. (And the same but to the next tab for the
Right arrow key of course.)
Ctrl+Shift+Tab already do tab switching, so I feel this is an unnecessary duplication that makes using the default more difficult, and a confusing key/command mapping since it means different things with just timing.
Is there a way to configure Chrome to always run the navigation commands even when the
Alt key is held down before the arrow key is pressed?
