Mozilla & Gecko clones

Firefox 29 has been released, and the most prominent new feature is an entirely new user interface. It's smoother and less angular, and has clearly been designed to somewhat resemble Google Chrome. Hence, I personally think it's a major step forward - except for Firefox' version of the Chrome menu, which uses a grid of icons instead of a list (?!) - but I'm nearly 100% convinced many Firefox users will not like it. It's change, after all.

Luckily, Firefox is customisable to the point of insanity, so I'm pretty sure you can revert to the old look with the right themes and extensions.

And yet i could never create a keybind that allowed me to jump directly between tabs like i can with ctrl(windows)/alt(linux)+1-0 on Firefox.

Go into Preferences -> Advanced -> Shortcuts and check [X] Enable single-key shortcuts.

You can now select the tabs by pressing the numbers 1 to 9.

I see that i can jump back and forth by using 1 and 2, but that is not quite what i was talking about.

What i mean is that in Firefox i can go to tab 1 by hitting alt+1, tab 2 by hitting alt+2 and so on. Meaning that i can just directly between any of the 10 first tabs i have open.
