@Eirik: Tor browser is Firefox ESR, so no point including that separately. Also, I doubt any of the browsers provide custom keyboard binding ability out of the box. Most likely you’re achieving it with add-ons?
I concur with your request though in general, and not just limited to tab switching either. IMO Sumatra with a customizable toolbar and customizable keyboard shortcuts would be a real improvement that many would prefer over the current version (and those who don’t care need not customize anything). Unfortunately these seem to be very long-term development goals, unless someone pitches in and helps @kjk out with working code/patches. So, any (wannabe) hot-shot programmers interested?
@kjk: On that note, I really think you should take part in Google’s Summer of Code if at all possible, because it will definitely provide a massive boost to the app’s feature set (all code commits by interns subject to your approval of course). Have you ever considered and looked into it?
