For other applications I use Cmd-Tab to switch between different application and Cmd-backquote to switch between windows of the same application.

But not for browsers.

How to switch between browser windows?

Ctrl-Tab switches between browser tabs on both Safari and Firefox.

Cmd-` will switch between open windows of a browser. However, if your browser windows are full-screen, then just like any other app, that key combination will not work. In that case you have to use the Spaces controls, Ctrl-➡️ and Ctrl-⬅️

  • The problem is that <kbd>Cmd</kbd>-<kbd>`</kbd> works for all applications (even in full screen mode) except Chrome browser.
