This extension allows you to quickly switch to any application shortcut or tab pinned in any browser window.
This extension is intended to be launched via a global keyboard shortcut. Then from any application on your computer, hit that shortcut and then another key to make a particular pinned tab active.
To set the global hotkey, click the Keyboard shortcuts link in Chrome's Extensions screen. In the box next to "Popup Quick Switch" set the hotkey, then set the dropdown to "Global". If you are running Chrome under multiple user profiles, you will have to install the extension on each profile (and assign a different global hotkey for each).
Permissions: Requires access to the current tab information, which Chrome reports as "read your browser history". It does not actually read your browser history.
