Switching page tabs using Firefox on Ubuntu

Having more or less switched away from Windows to Ubuntu, I was looking for a way to switch between open page tabs on Firefox 3.0.5, having got used to this feature on Windows in the past.

Thanks to this, I've "discovered" that I can use [Ctrl] + [Tab] to cycle through open tabs from left to right, or [Ctrl] + [PgUp] to move left or [Ctrl] + [PgDn] to move right.

Sweet !

I can also use [Alt] + [1] to switch to tab 1, [Alt] + [2] to switch to tab 2 etc. etc. etc.

Another handy shortcut I use in firefox is [Ctrl] + [w] to close tabs.

@Carlos, good point - I've been using that one for a while but forgot to mention it :-(
