Normally I use Opera, but a certain CMS I am managing fails to support it and works best in Chrome due to gratuitous JavaScript. I am looking for some way to be able to switch tabs in Chrome by holding RMB and scrolling, preferably in order of last tab access time.

If you hover the mouse pointer over the browser tabs the mousewheel does change which tab is active. – Al E. Sep 2 '12 at 16:38
@AlEverett that sounds useful, but doesn't seem to work for me. Do I need to enable it somehow? – kotekzot Sep 3 '12 at 10:33
Not as far as I know. I didn't realize it did that until I tried it yesterday. – Al E. Sep 3 '12 at 15:26

I personnally use SmoothGestures. It's been withdrawn from the chrome webstore, but you can still get it from it Project page.

Thanks, but I'd rather avoid installing spyware. – kotekzot Sep 2 '12 at 11:08
As far as I understood the controversy, the developer made a stupid move to try to achieve some goal unrelated to spywaring, and removed the guilty line as soon as the first critics started. But of course it's ultimately your choice :) – m4573r Sep 2 '12 at 11:35
