Re: Tab handling shortcuts across KDE applications

I see that I missed new tab in my last message. For new tab Ctrl+t is commonly used.

It looks like ctrl+pgup/ctrl+pgdn has already been decided on for now. I would agree that we should do ctrl+tab/ctrl+shift+tab as the default secondary one, though. Would be good to support both.

That said, most programs (e.g. Firefox, Chromium) that use ctrl+tab for the primary shortcut also support ctrl+pgup/pgdn.

Ctrl+w to always close a tab (and the window if it's the last tab or there are no tabs) seems right to me as well. That's the way all the web browsers work, as well as how it works across programs in macOS, and most KDE and GNOME apps already.

I would use. Crtl+tab / Ctrl+shift+tab to move forward and backward thru tabs . Those are used often and are the almost standard.  Ctrl +w to close current tab or current window in a multi window program. Personally I would avoid crtl +pgup/pgdn as thay combo seams akward to press.
