Feature Request: please make tabs follow Firefox control scheme...
 
I realize that this doesn't apply to everyone, and don't get me wrong, I love the new tabs. However, for those of us that use Firefox on a daily basis, tabs have become an integral part of our computer usage. As such, the hot keys and actions associated with controlling tabs in Firefox have really become second nature. To this end, I would like to suggest that the following two changes be made:

1) In addition to the default key combination of "Alt+B" for launching a new tab connection, please add the Firefox standard "Ctrl+T" as well

2) In Firefox, another COMMONLY used method, most common probably, for opening a new tab is to double click on an empty space on the tab bar. This should have the same result that "Alt+B" or "Ctrl+T" (hope) would have.

These two additions would make the usability for Firefox people a LOT more intuitive, and would keep us from having to learn yet another set of key combinations and actions.

Thank you in advance.

I second this concept, though I'm not sure if it should be enabled by default.

I think mouse-shortcuts the same as Firefox by default would be an excellent idea, but as Maureen has stated, key-shortcuts can interfere with the remote side, so I'm relunctant to say those should be enabled by default.

But operation similar to Firefox would be lovely...


Cheers,
Jason

As Jason mentioned, we can't use Ctrl+T because of potential conflicts on the remote side. However, you can map Ctrl+T to MENU_TAB_NEW in your version.

Currently, "Connect in tab" brings up the connect dialog so that you can select a session to connect to. Is that what you would expect double clicking on the empty part of the tab bar to do?

Maureen, thank you for the tip on Ctrl+T. As for the second question, yes, that was the expected behavior I was looking for. Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the reply. I added your request to our development database. I'm not sure we'll be able to get this done for 5.0, but if not, we'll consider implementing it in a future version.
