AutoHotkey allows you to use your mouse buttons to move between browser tabs

September 10th, 2014 Leave a comment Go to comments

Here's an AutoHotkey script we wrote that allows you to use the buttons on a mouse to switch between browser tabs.  To use it, hold down the left mouse button while clicking the browser back or forward buttons.
#SingleInstance force
~LButton & XButton1::Send {Blind}{LButton Up}^+{Tab}
~LButton & XButton2::Send {Blind}{LButton Up}^{Tab}
To run or compile this script, here's a free download of AutoHotkey.

    I do enjoy the way you have framed this pacilrutar situation plus it does indeed offer me personally some fodder for consideration. Nevertheless, because of what I have seen, I really trust when the actual feedback pack on that men and women stay on issue and not start upon a soap box involving the news du jour. All the same, thank you for this outstanding piece and while I do not concur with the idea in totality, I value the viewpoint.

    This may possibly have been the most entertaining comment spam I've seen so far.

If you would like a reply to your comment, you must leave your email address! We receive dozens of questions every month from people who don't leave us with any way to contact them, so we have no choice but to ignore the question. We try to reply to as many questions as we can, if we know the email address of the person who asked the question. Thanks in advance for writing in :)
