    Default New command+tab function, possible?

    Hi I wonder if its possible to re-assign the command+tab shortcut so it switches tabs in my browser instead of applications on the mac. I use webapps all the time and would like to configure my mac like this.

    Though I would advise against this, here's a way to change app's shortcuts. (You need Mac OS X dev tools available on the disc)



    Note: only works with Mac OS X native applications, and might not work if it's a system shortcut...


    Easy—and works for almost every other application (except for FireFox)
    Note: you need to install developer tools from the Mac OS X disc (Interface Builder.app)
    Note: updating that app may reset shortcuts


    Right-click (or control-click) the application in Finder, bring up the context menu, select "Show Package Contents".


    This should bring up a new Finder window with the folder "Contents";


    Go to the Contents/resources/English.lproj. There you should see a bunch of ".nib" files.


    Backup (by duplicating it) then open the one titled "MainMenu.nib" with Interface Builder from developer tools applications.


    You will then be presented with a few inspector windows, and a file window with "MainMenu.nib" on top; inside that window there will be a file hierarchy-like interface;


    Select MainMenu, then you will be presented with menu items. These items are what you see in the menu bar, grouped under the appropriate heading.


    To change shortcuts for the respective items go to the inspector, select the Attributes tab, and at the bottom there is a grey box where you can type in your shortcut.

    Save it, re-open your app, then you're done


    By the way for Safari the shortcut is Command+shift+{ or } and for Firefox/Camino it's command+option+left or right arrow.

    Thank you, great explanation.
    I guess I first should disable the shortcut in mac os x, so it wont be triggered when I assign it to the browser. How to do this?

    Try fKeys for modifying the shortcuts:
    ( it's beta software, so you're warned)

    I would still advise you to use the original shortcut. Those are usually the best
