I do know that we can use Ctrl+Tab and Ctrl+Shift+Tab for opening next and previous tabs and also Ctrl+N for opening the Nth tab...

But what I am looking for is opening the previously opened tab (Qview in a remote).

Assume that I have 8 tabs open in a window, and I was previously on tab-3. Now I am on tab-7.

Now I need a key-combination that will take me back to tab-3. And once I move to tab-3 hitting the same key combination should bring me back to tab-7.

I know what you mean, but don't know if this feature is implemented. You can go to a specific tab using Ctrl-[1-9] but I don't think you can do what you're after. – Miles Hayler Dec 7 '12 at 12:26

There is no native way to do this, but there is an extension called RecentTabs.

You can configure it to either switch between two last tabs, or display a list of open tabs.

I liked the option of switching between the last two tabs. – Gokul N K Dec 19 '12 at 9:44
