Any chance that tab changing with mousewheel is possible?

In the case when many tabs are open in Chromium in general, navigating trough them is quite a pain! That is one of the most painful inflexible features of Chromium. Do not know if something like that could be implemented, but scrolling through the tabs with the mousewheel would be great, would enhance productivity a lot in general.

here! here! very good idea!

There is all ready a keyboard shortcut. Ctrl+Tab to move to the right through the tabs Ctrl+Shift+Tab to move to the left.

You mean when hovering the mouse on one of the tabs and scrolling the wheel? Is there any other browser which does that?
I usually use ctrl+tab to switch between the tabs.

Your suggestion sounds like a good idea. But I haven't got any other similar requests in this aspect.

I like "hovering", could it perhaps be implemented without the scrollwheel? If you hover and not click the mouse over a tab that is not the focus for say 1 second the browser would go into a mode where it will display each tab the mouse passes over until you move the mouse from "hovering" over the tabs. I will post this thought as an independent Feature Request.
