I want to cycle through recently used tabs in Safari 7.1.3 (MacOS 10.9.5) like one can in in Firefox, Chrome, and Opera. I predominantly run Opera 11.64, and it exhibits the best behavior for this recently-used-tab switching. Is there a way to do this in Safari, even if it requires an extension/plugin/addon of some kind?

Note: cycling/switching between tabs in most-recently-used (aka "visited") order is different than simply cycling through all the tabs as they are listed at the top of the browser; the latter seems more-commonly discussed.

From the tips on SnazzyLabs, ⇧-⌘-T reopens last tab closed (N number of times) AND will restore the last session if all/Safari are closed.

In essence, it is going backwards through your recent history one step at a time.
