Reorder shortcuts using ctrl-shift pgup/pgdn on Windows/Mac just like you can already do in Linux.
Chrome on Linux lets you re-order your tabs using the keyboard shortcuts ctrl-shift-pgup and ctrl-shift-pgdn. If you use Windows or Mac these shortcuts are not available to you. This tiny, unobtrusive extension fixes that.
Move active tab left - ctrl-shift-pgup
Move active tab right - ctrl-shift-pgdn
Move active tab to first position - ctrl-shift-1
Move active tab to last position - ctrl-shift-9
Move active tab to nth position - ctrl-shift-<2..8>

Q: It's not working on this page!
A: Please note that NO Chrome extensions with a content script (such as this) are allowed to run in the Google Chrome Webstore (i.e. this page!)
Q: It's not working on other pages!
A: Tabs you had open prior to installing this extensions need to be reloaded before this will work.
Q: I use a MacBook Pro. The extension doesn't seem to work!
A: Fn-up/down arrow is equivalent to pgup/down. This means that using ctrl-shift-fn-up/down arrow is what you need!
Q: I sync my extensions across different Operating Systems. Will this break things on Linux?
A: No. The extension does nothing on Linux to avoid ctrl-shift-pgup/down moving the tab twice.
Q: What did you test this on?
A: Chrome 11/12 on Mac / Windows 7 / Windows XP / Ubuntu Lucid Lynx
Q: Still having problems?
A: Let me know and I will fix it. Don't make me ask for obvious details though. I would need browser version and operating system. Did you try it with no other extensions installed?
