Hey,

really like Phoenix now that I convinced it to do java as well. One more feature I would like to
see (or maybe it is there already and I just don't know how to use it?):
Navigating from tab to tab using the keyboard would be really nice, e.g. using Ctrl--> to move
to the next tab or so. Since the "invention" of type ahead links (which are really great, btw)
I use the keyboard much more often to navigate. Moving from tab to tab would be the next
logical step, i.e. when opening links in new tabs.

Greetings,
Alex

Use (Shift-)Ctrl-Tab to cycle, Ctrl-1 to Ctrl-9 for direct access. Go to David Tenser's Phoenix Help keyboard shortcuts page for more info on shortcuts.

Is there a way to change the keyboard shortcuts? I would like to use Ctrl-Tab to switch through tabs instead.

Yes, you can go into the code and change the shortcuts yourself. It's an open source project :)

What do you mean when you say "switch through tabs"? From my understanding Mozilla/Phoenix already do this.

In my experience, Phoenix tabs behave like all "standard" tabbed windows should. Ctrl+Tab cycles forward, Shift+Ctrl+Tab cycles back.
