I have a couple of Web sites that have conflicting keyboard assignments with Google Chrome. For example, there are several sites where Ctrl+Shift+B (or Command+Shift+B on Mac) is a shortcut for Bold or Bullet, but this combination is already used by Chrome to toggle the visibility of the bookmarks toolbar.

The question is simply: how to disable this and similar shortcuts in Chrome so the shortcut/function of the web site will be in effect.

There are other similar posts, but please note that I want to disable a specific set of shortcuts, not add new shortcuts! So as far as I can see, applications/extensions like keyconfig or Shortcut Manager as described in customizing chromium keyboard shortcuts does not work.

You are not trying to disable the keyboard shortcuts on the user's side are you? This is just on your end right? –  Ramhound Apr 2 '13 at 11:21
I just want to remove the shortcut in my Chrome, so the web sites jI use - e.g. Blogger - works better/properly... –  Tonny Madsen Apr 2 '13 at 12:20
Would like to know that, too. –  demonkoryu May 31 '13 at 10:20

I found a chrome app (Shortcut Manager) that may fill your needs.

I did not try it, but it seems to work.

It was mentioned in an AskUbuntu topic
