Ctrl-T makes new tab Alt-1 switches to tab no 1 Alt-2 switches to tab no 2 and so on Ctrl-W closes tab F6 switches between bookmarks (side pane) and main window Ctrl-B opens boormarks editor Tab (the worst key) switches focus elsewhere sometimes Ctrl-Tab (even worse) starts a game "try to get your focus back"
